The Future Economy – Niilo Edwards

What are the key drivers of change within Canada’s Indigenous economy?

I think there has been a paradigm shift in favour of the Indigenous economy in Canada. This is partly because of the advances in case law through a number of Supreme Court cases. Moreover, there is now government recognition of Indigenous issues as well as a sense of economic empowerment among Indigenous communities. We now stand up and take part in Canada’s economy.
