  • “The Indigenous Leadership Development Institute (ILDI) has long been an organization that has brought significant capacity building opportunities to the First Nations of Manitoba. We at the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs have, over the years, had an excellent working relationship with ILDI producing important benefits to community economic development initiatives, local governance and program management. I am pleased to offer my full support of ILDI, and know that their efforts will continue to strengthen our First Nation communities.”
