Business connection series launched.

On Oct. 21, the Calgary Chamber of Commerce launched its Business Connection series designed to provide businesses and Aboriginal communities with tools to build successful partnerships and economic opportunities. "Aboriginal communities are integral to the growth of the Canadian economy," said Ben Brunnen, director of policy and government affairs and chief economist with the Calgary Chamber. "They represent new markets, an underutilized labour force and valuable business partnerships." Supported by Treaty 7 Management Corporation and the Circle for Aboriginal Relations Society, topics included corporate social responsibility, best practices in consultation and accommodation, structuring business partnerships, governance and economic policy, accessing capital on-reserve and Federal engagement. The series will culminate in a report and toolkit.
