Indigenous Financial Management: Finally Finding Balance – A Primer

To shape Canada’s future economy and build Indigenous communities across the country, we need more Indigenous people in finance and management roles in both Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations.

Canada’s economic future will be shaped by the management of its wealth. How can Indigenous people help influence that management?

We need to shift from a narrative of managing poverty to one of managing wealth. That is why we have released a research primer, in partnership with The Conference Board of Canada, detailing the career paths of Indigenous finance and management professionals in Canada to better understand what enables or hinders their participation in these occupations.

Highlights include the legal and historical context, how self-determination plays a role in this need, the types of training and certifications now available, and the road ahead for this project.
