Indigenous economic development consortium announced

A new consortium to promote Indigenous economic development across Canada was recently announced at UVic.

The National Consortium for Indigenous Economic Development (NCIED) has the Peter B.

The consortium was developed with the collaboration of leaders from Indigenous communities, business and government.

More “Faces” wanted for popular video series
