Building knowledge about Trusts and Investments for Indigenous people by Indigenous people,
to enhance the professionalism and accountability in the management of this important resource.


The health and safety of our attendees is our top priority. In light of the growing concerns regarding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 7th annual Indigenous Trust & Investment Conference as well as our Inaugural Indigenous Youth Summit . The 7th Annual Trust & Investment Conference will take place on September 28th & 29th at the Sheraton in Calgary. The AGM will be on September 27th at 2pm. We are still awaiting new dates for the Inaugural Youth Summit.

This was not an easy decision to make, as we are aware of the amount of time, preparation, and anticipation that delegates, speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors have dedicated to the conference. We acknowledge that all participants have made time in their schedules as well as travel and accommodation plans for the conference, and we remain committed to creating a similarly high quality experience for the event in September.

We sincerely appreciate your interest in the 7th annual Indigenous Trust & Investment Conference, Conference passes, booths and Sponsorship’s will be carried forward to September 28th & 29th 2020.
