The Grand Council of the Crees

Stronger Together – Eeyou-Eenou Economic Development Conference

Neoskweskau Sports Complex, Mistissini (Eeyou Istchee), November 10-11, 2015

Reflecting on the economic development we need, and how we can achieve it.

The Stronger Together Conference will be an opportunity for political and business people from the Cree Nation to come together and discuss the realities, goals and challenges we have in regards to the economic well-being of our communities.

We need to think about how we can build a strong and unified economy which is diversified, and which serves the needs and aspirations of all sectors of the Eeyou-Eenou Nation.

The Conference offers perspectives on the past, present and future from a variety of speakers, and is designed to foster exchanges to help guide us in our efforts to strengthen our economies.
