As we continue to move through the summer, we’ve seen some news worth celebrating from our communities in the historic leadership placements achieved with the appointment of Mary Simon as Governor General of Canada, and the election of RoseAnne Archibald to National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations.
In further welcome news, Ontario is beginning to open up economically once again, and we hope your organizations, communities, and families are returning to a sense of normalcy and continuing to enjoy good health. To our members and communities affected by the threat of wildfires, we’ve included some updates and resources in this newsletter and we urge you to prioritize your safety.
We at the Anishnawbe Business Professional Association will be taking a short break from our event activities during August and September, and we look forward to hosting our members and guests again in October with an event alongside our Annual General Meeting. We will be planning ahead to begin our programming in the fall and our next fiscal year, and we invite you to take a few minutes and share with us what topics you would be most interested in hearing about in a speaker series or workshop. You can view and complete our short survey at https://abpa.live/topics to leave your feedback.
We will continue to advocate for our First Nations businesses and entrepreneurs in Northern Ontario.
