The African Community Investment Cooperative of Canada Ltd (ACICC) in collaboration with partner organizations plan a conference on creating a self-reliant African Nova Scotian Economic Community.
The need for this conference cannot be over-emphasized. Today, it is well known that we are facing enormous challenges finding resources needed to sustain our community from local to global. With our giant strides in history, it is our collective responsibility as a community to ensure our own economic sustainability and social wellbeing. In this our generation, we believe that the time has come for us to come together, stay together and work together with one voice for our own economic development and self-reliance in Nova Scotia.
Strengthen the relationships between all peoples of African descent through thoughtful and reflective dialogue.
• To bring together all persons of African descent to begin discussions on economic sustainability and working together towards self-reliance.
• Examine social enterprise, asset-based and other social models that would help create resilient communities and build communities from the inside-out.
• Showcase best practices and innovations that exist within African Nova Scotia communities in the area of economic development.
