MNP and MLT Aikins are bringing our leading advisers from across the country for our annual Vantage West conference on Wednesday, April 4. We look forward to discussing cutting edge topics Indigenous organizations do not want to miss.

Over this full-day conference, our speakers will shed light on the timely business, management and legal issues that Indigenous leaders must consider to establish a progressive vision for the future of their communities and realize their economic development goals

This must-attend conference is designed for chiefs, councillors, chairmen, CEOs and other executive decision-makers and will be a great opportunity to network with other senior members of prosperous Indigenous communities across northern B.C., Alberta and the NWT.
