October 1, 2018 (Ottawa) – Today AFOA Canada kicks off its Inaugural International Conference to discuss “Human Capital – Balancing Indigenous Culture and Creativity with Modern Workplaces”. The Ottawa Shaw Centre will be home to over 1,000 prominent Indigenous business and elected leaders from around the world October 2-4, 2018.

There are several drivers that are shaping how Indigenous communities manage their programs, services and human capital. These drivers include but are not limited to global connectivity, smart machines, new media, social and economic prosperity and demographic shifts.
