APEX Aboriginal Partnership

APEX Aboriginal Partnership Exchange Great Success  


by Scott A. Sumner

  A very well attended all day conference was held recently at the Victoria Inn Hotel & Conference Centre. This first time event attracted over 300 people and included some powerful speakers talking about opportunities for both aboriginal and non aboriginal businesses


   “  We decided to go into partnership with the NADF  and coordinate  this event to bring aboriginal and non aboriginal businesses together and create some dialogue and  look for opportunities to partner. We are so excited with the attendance here today with three times the number of people we were looking at getting in the room,” said Nancy Milani, Show Manager APEX.  “ Our keynote speaker is Chief Clarence Louie who comes from the Osoyoos Indian Band in BC, the most successful band in Canada. They are very prosperous and all about economic development.”

   “ We are delighted at the Chamber  to have  the first aboriginal Chair of the Board, Joe Moses. The Aboriginal Opportunities Committee we have going on at the Chamber  as we felt there was a need  to aboriginal and non aboriginal businesses  to work together. We realized they weren't typically doing business together today so that was the purpose.” said Nancy. “ There seems to be the demand for this type of event. We have 20 exhibits here today as well with businesses ready to
partner with others.”
