NATOA is a charity organization committed to providing Indigenous Peoples of Canada with the resources and information that will help them efficiently create, manage, and operate trusts as a means to ensure the seven generations yet unborn, can benefit from the goals and dreams of the present generation.

NATOA’s goal is to be a highly professional and relevant resource for Indigenous Peoples in becoming self-sustaining and vital economic communities.


Sharing of Knowledge

Opportunities for development of Indigenous trust officers and managers and for the sharing of knowledge among Indigenous communities and their advisors.

Educational Program

Educational program for Indigenous trust officers, NATOA members and others through online and national and regional workshops.

Advocacy and Engagement

Engage in advocacy on issues impacting the management and operation of Indigenous trusts.

Our Mandate

The Board of Directors of NATOA are committed to ensuring that the best possible information on areas relevant to Trusts, such as investing, Trust structures; accounting, tax, management, administration, and legal issues is available through an internet-based research library website and national/regional workshops.

As more and more Indigenous governments, organizations, and communities establish trusts to hold and manage the funds obtained from their claims (land claims, treaty land entitlement, hydro claims) or business activities, it is critical to ensure these funds are prudently and responsibly managed and that structures are in place to reflect the particular aspirations and objectives of an individual community.

NATOA’s commitment to strengthening Indigenous communities and their ability to meet their own member needs and desires through financial opportunities utilizing trust funds and investing principles that are consistent with Indigenous Cultural traditions and values generally and those of individual communities specifically. Advancing the goals and opportunities of Indigenous women and youth is vital to the capacity and future success of our Trusts and communities.
