IRPP Event

Cultural Capital: Indigenous Approaches to Economic Growth 

Join us on Monday, June 3 in Winnipeg for a conversation about Indigenous approaches to economic growth, which will seek to highlight success stories from a variety of Indigenous communities and explain how orders of government in the federation can be the best partners in supporting economic independence. 

Featuring remarks from: 

  • Alain Beaudry, principal at Waapihk Research
  • Michelle Cameron, owner of Dreamcatcher Promotions
  • Kathleen BlueSky, interim CEO 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 the IRPP’s director of research Steve Lafleur, will take place in person at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Participation is free, though space is limited and registration is required. A light lunch will follow the panel discussion. 

This event coincides 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.
