We hope your families and communities are doing well at this time, and we look forward to the lockdown restriction being lifted soon as we head towards summer.
It’s been a busy Spring at the ABPA. With the warmer weather here in the North, we know construction season is underway, and we hope you’ll join us later this week for our webinar, Procurement Opportunities & Processes. We’ll have Valard Construction and Supercom Industries join us to present on how Indigenous Businesses can navigate the procurement process and better prepare for the qualifying and bidding process in the future. You can read the details in our Newsletter below, and register at www.abpa.live/p2ip.
Our advocacy for our First Nations businesses and entrepreneurs in Northern Ontario continues. I spoke with CTV News about the proposed Bill-C-15, and our hopes that as it develops we’ll see more vital consultation with First Nations leadership and Elders to ensure that it can be the measure of success that it has the potential to become. You can take a look at the article in our newsletter below.
