Cando was pleased to be in Fredericton, New Brunswick for the 24th Annual National Conference & Annual General Meeting (AGM) where close to 300 delegates were treated to a variety of workshops, presentations and panel discussions delivered by over 50 speakers. 

We would like to say a very special thank you to our delegates, stakeholders, presenters and conference co-hosts: St. Mary's First Nation and the Joint Economic Development Initiative (JEDI) for helping us make this year's conference a success.   

Cando would also like to thank the Conference Committee & the Regional Working Group as we could not have organized this year's Annual National Conference & AGM without their significant effort.
