FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NSCC, Strait Area Chamber of Commerce host symposium on Mi’kmaq success
 
Major Industries, like our presenting sponsor Port Hawkesbury Paper, that work in collaboration with the Mi’kmaq communities are experiencing positive success. Nova Scotia’s prosperity is linked to ongoing collaboration and dialogue, says Dan Christmas, Senior Advisor with Membertou First Nation and a One Nova Scotia Commissionaire.
 
Christmas will deliver the keynote address at the educational symposium, In Business Together – Learning from Mi’kmaq Success, hosted by NSCC Strait Area Campus and the Strait Area Chamber of Commerce. The day-long event will bring business and community leaders together for a discussion on how the Mi’kmaq communities are partners in growing the Nova Scotia economy. With the One Nova Scotia Report challenging all Nova Scotians to work together and embrace an entrepreneurial spirit, the need to explore the lessons of success from the Mi’kmaq communities have never been more important.
 
“From the incredible growth we’ve experienced at Membertou to the opening of the Wagmatcook Learning Centre, our community is proud of our accomplishments,” says Christmas. “It’s through working together with the business community and partners in our community like NSCC, that we’ve been able to realize this success.”
