Western Economic Diversification Canada
November 19, 2013
On October 25, 2013 Western Economic Diversification Canada announced the new Western Innovation (WINN) Initiative. WINN will provide up to $100 million over the next five years in federal repayable assistance to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) operating in Western Canada that are working to commercialize their products, processes, and services.
Under WINN, SMEs can apply for funding for a variety of tasks that are essential in taking a product from the R&D stage to the market, such as product testing and technology demonstrations, equipment purchases and installation, regulatory approval, marketing, and intellectual property protection.

Aboriginal Cross Cultural Worshop
Did you know there are 45 First Nations in Treaties 6, 7 and 8 and 8 Metis settlements in Alberta? In 1951 Edmonton’s Aboriginal population was 661 and in 2006 it was 52,105 and growing due to rural/urban migration and higher birthrates than the non-aboriginal population. Today, Canada’s First Peoples are integral to the growth of a healthy economic and vibrant community.
Does your organization know how to tap into the Aboriginal Community to do business, and recruit and retain aboriginal employees? Enhance your relationships with Aboriginal people by gaining an understanding of beliefs, values, and communication styles and how they may differ from your own, while gaining the knowledge and strategies to collaborate with this growing workforce.
This workshop will create and enhance employment and business opportunities for your organizations.
