Registration

Pre-register for the Indigenous and Newcomer Business Roundtable.

All roundtables will be held at City Hall and facilitated by Mayor Helps. In order to cross pollinate (and to cut down on the number of meetings!) we’ve batched two topics together per roundtable. Please give some thought to the discussion questions in advance. If you’re interested in reading this background piece, 10 Traits of Globally Fluent Metro Areas, please feel free to do so.
