More than ever, practitioners working in the field of Indigenous Economic Development are actively involved in critically examining their local economies as they strategize their economic futures. To be successful, one needs to know how their economy works – its strengths, weaknesses, and hidden potential. It is also tremendously helpful to understand how other economies work. Sharing best practices is the key to ensuring we make continual advancements in economic development, learning from one another and adapting to ensure success.
Cando has selected a variety of tools and links to a wide range of Indigenous economic development literatures designed to enable anyone to keep abreast of the most current and relevant trends in Indigenous Economic Development.
Cando strives to ensure we provide the most up-to-date and useful tools. If there are any tools you would like to share or see hosted here, we would love to know! Please email Svitlana Konoval to discuss this opportunity.
The Alberta Lands and Economic Development Advisory Committee (Alberta LEDAC) has been established so that Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) and others can continue to enhance their lands & economic development programming to meet the challenges, needs and opportunities of Indigenous communities and individuals.
