NATOA

Be A Part of Your Community’s Future

The National Aboriginal Trust Officers Association (NATOA) is delighted to host another successful Trust and Investment Conference. The 2-day national event is designed to provide an informative and interactive venue for all those involved with Aboriginal Trusts. Speakers will represent both the Indigenous Communities who have established, or in the process of establishing, and maintained successful Trust operations, and members of the Corporate Industry that effectively service these Communities.

The theme of this year’s conference is Be A Part Of Your Community’s Future.

We all have the opportunity to make decisions that affect our future generations to come. From the short-term needs of current population to the longer-term goals of economic prosperity, healthy opportunities and education that reflect traditional and cultural values.

The 2018 NATOA National Indigenous Trust and Investment Conference will provide you with valuable information on how some of our communities have been able to implement successful strategies that provide great benefit to their people. From Responsible Investment decisions that impact our environment and traditional lands to the Indigenous rights we hold in such high regard to the day to day management of our Trust funds, this conference will help you ensure your community will be set on the proper path for success.

Set in the beautiful traditional lands of the Kootenay, Stoney, Blood, Peigan, Siksika and Tsuu T’ina peoples, the Banff environment will be a relaxing and educational experience.
