IRPP Event

Cultural Capital: Indigenous Approaches to Economic Growth 

On June 3, 2024  in Winnipeg, we held a conversation about Indigenous approaches to economic growth, which highlighted success stories from a variety of Indigenous communities and explained how orders of government in the federation can be the best partners in supporting economic independence. 

The event featured remarks from: 

  • Alain Beaudry, principal at Waapihk Research
  • Michelle Cameron, owner of Dreamcatcher Promotions
  • Cody Mercer, Supply Chain Manager at Treaty One Development Corporation 
  • James (Jamie) Wilson, vice-president of Indigenous strategy, research and business development at Red River College Polytechnic

The panel, moderated by IRPP research director of research Steve Lafleur, took place in person at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Adrien Sala, Manitoba’s Minister of Finance,  delivered opening remarks. 

This event coincided with the Institute for Research on Public Policy’s annual general meeting. Each year, the IRPP holds its AGM in a different Canadian city and seeks to connect its staff and board from across the country with members of the local and regional public policy community.
