Connecting Communities, Creating Opportunities: VICA, Hazelwood, Scotiabank, Canwest & Pinchin at ABM Indigenous: Vancouver Island

VICA, along with members Hazelwood Construction GroupScotiabankCanwest Mechanical, and Pinchin, will be attending ABM Indigenous: Vancouver Island again this year. Held in partnership with the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation at the Songhees Innovation Centre in Victoria from March 16 to 18, ABM Indigenous: Vancouver Island is part of a series of events held across Canada by Advanced Business Match with the express purpose of connecting Indigenous to non-Indigenous decision makers to create opportunities for business.

At ABM Indigenous: Vancouver Island, community and business leaders will meet potential collaborators for projects in industries that range from natural resources, construction, tourism supply and services, manufacturing, retail and more, as they look to forge sustainable, prosperous futures.

ABM Indigenous events provide a trusted and safe space within which to start, facilitate and grow business relationships with Indigenous leaders. As we know, one of the first, and most impactful, steps in advancing economic prosperity involves real estate development and construction. We think VICA members can benefit from meeting the Indigenous leaders actively pursuing development projects. And there are non-Indigenous Island businesses also available to meet for potential partnerships.

ABM is pleased to offer VICA Members a 10% discount should they feel the event is the right fit for them. Chenelle Falconer and John Espley will be representing the VICA Team at the event, and Kelly Marion will be floating around.
