Welcome to another issue of Lessons from Experience. This year’s articles take us on a cross country tour where we explore the endless possibilities of economic development within and for Indigenous communities and people. To begin, on a national scale, Transforming Indigenous Procurement: Empowerment, Challenges, and the Road Ahead, provides us with an in-depth view of the world of procurement in Canada and the realities for Indigenous communities, corporations, and individuals to participate in this unique opportunity. Next, we are to celebrate the wonderful successes of Norway House Cree Nation, for their amazing work and dedication to build capacity and success within their community. Within their five-year economic development strategy, the reader learns about the construction of a new health centre, partnerships with mineral exploration companies, and construction of a fibre link from the community to the provincial network, to name a few successes.
