Trusts can be effective tools for the protection and creation of strong and sustainable First Nation communities. However, in order to yield their potential economic and social community benefits, they must be properly structured to reflect the objectives of the individual community, prudently managed, and their unique complexities must be addressed.

With this in mind, this forum assembles an expert faculty to discuss key issues in the development, operation and management of First Nation trusts. In addition, leaders in the field of First Nation trusts will facilitate a roundtable in which delegates will be invited to share their experiences, discuss success stories and failures, and discuss current issues. Delegates will leave with a solid understanding of First Nation trusts and with the best practices, practical advice and tools needed to create and manage successful trusts.
