The Multi-Sectoral Economic Opportunities for Indigenous People (MSEOIP)
It is designed to avail economic and employment opportunities for Indigenous people – especially the youth. The project calls for a roundtable consisting of 12 participants – a microcosm of the larger Canadian economic landscape – with representation of the Indigenous people, corporate, education and government sectors. In contrast to past approaches, the present project adopts the perspective that the issue of creating meaningful economic opportunities requires a holistic and collaborative approach and understanding among representatives of the four pillars of the economy as it affects Indigenous people.
