Board of Directors
The Cando Board of Directors consists of elected members who are responsible for managing the affairs of Cando. The Board of Directors is responsible for developing Cando's three year business plan, including budgets. It makes annual adjustments to the business plan, and provides direction to the Cando Office through the Executive Director, who ensures the business plan is executed. Directors must hold full membership in Cando, be involved in economic development, and employed by an Indigenous organization or community. The Board convenes meetings two to three times per year at different locations in Canada and meets several times per year through teleconferencing.
Meet the Executive Committee
The Executive Committee was elected by the Board of Directors on November 22, 2018.
"I am deeply humbled and grateful to be elected for another one-year term as the President of Cando. I would like to also take the opportunity to congratulate Ed Collins as our new Vice-President and Elaine Chambers as our Secretary Treasurer. We have a lot of work to do to make our organization the go-to economic development national organization. This year I would like us to continue our efforts to reach out to all of the national organizations working in economic development to join us at the table to discuss how we can put our people first whether is First Nations, Inuit or Métis business owners."
