OFNEDA’s Annual Conference

First Nations Economic Advancement Conference 2022

Each year, OFNEDA offers an Annual Conference to its members. In August 2022, OFNEDA will host its Conference – “OPEN FOR BUSINESS” – Indigenous Procurement in Ontario at Casino Rama in Rama First Nation. The conference will focus on significant growth opportunities for Indigenous procurement with not only the federal and provincial governments but also private corporate Indigenous procurement. This economic sector is worth billions for Indigenous businesses and communities each year and represents the largest growth opportunity for Indigenous people over the next few years.

Each year, we bring approximately 150 delegates together, along with Government Officials, Industry Leaders and other dignitaries all interested in the advancement of Indigenous economies. After the “lockdown” over the past two years from COVID-19 many of us will be looking forward to re-establishing “face-to-face” communications with our friends, colleagues and partners.

Sponsorship & Trade Show Information

We have up to 25 exhibitor booths available for businesses, corporations and organizations to setup and make connections with the delegates in attendance. Time will be dedicated in the agenda for delegates to visit the trade show exhibitors throughout the duration of the conference .
