  • 1. “Maximizing Business Opportunities Through Industry Engagement” Sandy Sanderson October 22, 2013
  • 2. Agenda 3 Systemic Issues • Observing Canada’s Ignorance • Understanding the Roles of the Entities • Aboriginal Business Capacity
  • 3. Observing Canada’s Ignorance • “Aboriginal history not being taught well enough” - Shawn Atleo, Oct 07 2013 • National Chief Shawn Atleo says even highly educated Canadians know little about aboriginal history. Monday marks the 250th anniversary of the Royal Proclamation of 1763, which set out the historical First Nations' treaty process. • Allan Gregg, Tory Strategist - “Tecumseh’s Ghost” • Duncan Campbell Scott – “a policy of assimilation” • The Federation of Law Societies recommended last year that all new lawyers called to the bar have some knowledge of aboriginal rights. Law schools are thus taking steps to enhance their aboriginal law offerings and UBC last fall introduced a mandatory course for first-year students. • Targeting the right audience
  • 4. Understanding the Roles of the Entities • The role of Industry is to maximize shareholder equity whereas the role of Aboriginal Nations’ is more of a social entity • Industry understand profit and therefore it is easy to share in that language • Is it hitting the mark for Aboriginal Nations? Industry Aboriginal Nations Government
  • 5. Aboriginal Business • Separating business with politics • Board of Directors with bench strength • Clear mandate of responsibility and accountability • Aligning the consultation role with the business role • Measuring the political currency • Understanding the market segments • The “bakery scenario”
  • 6. Questions? Sandy Sanderson sandysan@shaw.ca 780-246-8080
