�This is truly an amazing opportunity, and I�m grateful for being selected to participate in this course,� said Oh�n:ton �:iente ne Ratits�nhaienhs (Grand Chief) Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer. �This course will be extremely valuable in my day-to-day duties as an elected official, to ensure we make educated decisions when it comes to the various aspects of leadership and business.�

The five-day course, which will be held from May 8 to 12, 2023, is aimed at providing First Nations Leaders, Executives, Administrators and Senior Managers of Indigenous communities and organizations with programs & training in the areas of investment governance, entrepreneurial finance, negotiations and change management.

The cost of the course, tuition, accommodations, and meals will be covered by the TD Bank Group, which offers scholarships for Indigenous Peoples for this specially tailored program.
