Registration will be at the door. Attendees are encouraged to bring copies of their résumé.

Chief Clarence Louie, arguably Canada’s boldest aboriginal leader, will deliver the keynote address from 12:15 to 1 pm.

Louie, chief of BC’s Osoyoos Indian Band, emphasizes economic development as a means of improving aboriginal people’s standard of living.

He’s also known for his blunt words. According to the Globe and Mail, during a presentation in Alberta in 2006, his comments to attendees included, “If your life sucks, it’s because you suck” and, “Join the real world – go to school or get a job.”
