The Centre for the North is for senior corporate, Aboriginal, and public sector leaders responsible for developing and leveraging their organizations’ Northern and Aboriginal policy mandates. Members must have a vested interest in the general themes covered by the Centre. They should also be motivated to contribute their expertise to furthering discussions and actions on the prosperity of Canada’s North—as seen from a domestic as well as an international perspective. Equally, members must have a desire to build trusted relationships and mutually beneficial partnerships to the benefit of Northerners.
