June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada, a time to recognize the rich history, heritage, resiliency and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples. Surrey has the greatest population of urban Indigenous Peoples.
“I am honoured to speak on a panel that focuses on strengthening the urban-rural Indigenous wellness continuum at the Indigenous Partnerships Success Showcase event on June 2nd,” said Anita Huberman, President & CEO, Surrey Board of Trade. “There is a strong economic connection between urban centres and rural communities in BC to focus on industry, cultural and infrastructure opportunities.”
“The Surrey Board of Trade is a proud partner of the Indigenous Partnerships Success Showcase event for the second year. This is the only Indigenous event that focuses on leadership-oriented solutions towards Indigenous reconciliation.”
Over 800 attendees are expected at the Vancouver Convention Centre for the Indigenous Partnerships Success Showcase to highlight leading-edge relationships between Indigenous businesses and corporate Canada to make reconciliation a reality for the whole nation.
