This Forum will help you understand the legal issues that impact Aboriginal taxation and economic development. Tax advantages
available to First Nations business and government are often under used and not a fully understood resource. Proper tax planning
can allow First Nation governments and businesses to foster economic development, expand community services and increase
revenue streams.

We cover some of the key legal issues for doing business with First Nations. Find out how selecting and understanding the best
corporate structure for your industry and Aboriginal joint venture will allow both parties to maximize the business opportunity.
Aboriginal communities and businesses recognize that responsible financial management is crucial not only for developing
sustainable communities, but also in order to do business on a national, regional and international scale. Studies also show, however, that business structures and models need to be culturally-appropriate and reflect the culture, traditions and values of the aboriginal community if they are to be effective.

We have organized a two-day conference to address key issues facing community business leaders, as well as finance advisors and
managers, in achieving operational stability and growth for the community. Whether the focus is on band operations, business
ventures or financing community projects, the ability to maximize financial management opportunities in a way that respects and
supports community values is a must for community leaders and financial officers.
