Former National Chief Phil Fontaine to Speak at CNA2017

CNA2017 is honoured to have Phil Fontaine speak on Thursday, February 23 at 3:30 pm.

Phil is an articulate advocate for the future of Canada and for indigenous peoples. As the former three-term National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, he is a shining example of how strong leadership can work.

The youngest son in an Ojibway family of 12 children, Phil been instrumental in facilitating change and advancement for First Nations people from the time he was first elected to public office as chief, at just 28 years old.

An advocate for human rights, and a survivor of residential school abuse, Phil’s crowning achievement to date is the residential schools settlement. At $5.6 billion in individual compensation, Phil negotiated the largest settlement in Canadian history – for the largest human rights violation in Canadian history.

Corporations, government personnel and individuals seeking leadership advice will benefit from Phil’s extraordinary ability to speak from the heart and teach others how to achieve results.
