Former Assembly of First Nations Chief Phil Fontaine and Cherie Brant, environmental lawyer, spoke at a recent Aboriginal Professional Association of Canada (APAC) event where professionals like Kenn Ross (Pan Am Games Toronto 2015), Veronica Johnny (musician), and Jason Wilson (Indigenous Development Inc. president) attended. This was a hot room to mine for potential job opportunities.
APAC hosts networking events and offers First Nations, Metis and Inuit professionals the chance to connect and support one another while giving members access to experienced Toronto HR professionals. Listen up Toronto, APAC gets you in the room with the people you need to know.
Tomorrow, Sunday, August 19th, at 3 p.m. APAC will host a Best of Student Work screening from the Weengushk Film Institute’s (WFI) participants.
