Indigenous leaders from across Canada will join former Prime Minister The Right Honourable Paul Martin at the University of Manitoba on May 4 for a public roundtable discussion on Indigenous communities in Canada.
Participants at Indigenous Leadership Roundtable 2017 will share experiences, perspectives and learning moments in their journeys toward empowering Indigenous peoples, improving education in Indigenous communities, and moving from theory to action in reconciliation. Martin will act as moderator for the public discussion.
“I believe young Indigenous Canadians deserve the best education possible,” says Martin. “This is both a moral issue and an economic issue, and we ignore it at our peril.”
