Brock Endean is a member of the Métis Nation and has formally studied in Commerce and Tourism. In the 2008-09, Brock spent several months volunteering in Peru – it was during his work with the Quechua people that Brock discovered his true passion for sustainable development and capacity building with Indigenous nations. After returning, Brock accepted the role of Manager of the Chase Chamber of Commerce, where he focused on tourism development and promotional efforts. In 2010, Brock joined the Ch’nook Indigenous Business Network, based at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and took the lead role for the Scholars Network, which supports First Nations students throughout BC in their studies of business education. Brock works closely with Aboriginal leaders, Deans, industry professionals, and community members to identify ways to support and encourage sustainable economic development for BC’s First Nations communities.
