The Arctic Indigenous Investment Conference (AIIC) is an annual gathering of the Canadian Arctic business community, hosted by the Yukon First Nations Chamber of Commerce in Whitehorse, Yukon. This year, AIIC will occur May 9-10 and focus on themes relating to the equitable economy.
Conferences are an important opportunity to learn more about a diverse set of industries, develop specific skills relating to business, network and build relationships with others in the business community, and grow personal confidence in each of our individual roles in entrepreneurship and the business community. As NNDDC is committed to reinvesting in our small business community and fostering growth and wellbeing for our people, land, and waters, we want to ensure that NND Citizens have opportunities to attend conferences and events like AIIC. This year, we’re excited to sponsor two (2) NND Citizens to attend AIIC, in addition to supporting travel and accommodations. If you are experiencing any other potential barriers to attendance please let us know - we would be happy to discuss.
