Coming soon, the INDIGENOMICS SERIES will add insight into key Canadian voices that highlight the significance of this emerging economy, its role in Canada and the required response to move towards a $100 billion Indigenous economy.

The INDIGENOMICS SERIES is an Indigenous Economic Dialogue Platform.  The Series will highlight points for developing an Indigenous economy and connect a national discussion with key business and  organizations on the growing Indigenous economy.  The Indigenomics Institute is undertaking a set of interviews on the topic- ‘How do we pay attention to the potential of a future 100 billion Indigenous economy and what is needed to get there?’  At the heart of this development is a resonating new narrative- We are a powerful people.

‘Timely, necessary, and inspiring, Indigenomics provides a framework for those committed to reconciliation, and to creating shared prosperity for a just and sustainable future.’

‘Indigenomics acts as a vehicle for understanding, creating meaning and expressing the relationship of Canada’s Indigenous people to current economic systems.  Through Carol-Anne Hilton’s pragmatic leadership, she is building a collective toolbox for building new economies of well-being, for both First Nations and other communities across Canada.’ 

Mark Anielski, President & Chief Well-being Officer, Anielski Management Inc. and Author of The Economics of Happiness and An Economy of Well-being
