The National Aboriginal Trust Officers Association (NATOA) is excited to announce the 4th Annual Indigenous Trust and Investment Conference and Annual General Meeting that will take place at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel on June 1 & 2, 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia.


NATOA is thrilled to host another successful Trust and Investment Conference. The 2-day event is designed to provide an informative and interactive venue for all those involved with Aboriginal Trusts. Speakers will represent both the Aboriginal Communities who have established, or in the process of establishing, and maintained successful Trust operations, and members of the Corporate Industry that effectively service these Communities.


The 2017 Trust and Investment Conference will be aimed at providing Aboriginal Communities with the comfort and confidence of making informed decisions for their Trust and Investment operations. Participants will have opportunities to:

  • Explore the Aboriginal Trust and Investment Industry
  • Develop an understanding of the background, evolution and complexities of Aboriginal Trusts
  • Learn how to identify your needs and those you may work with to help manage vital Community assets
  • Network and develop relationships among the nation’s leaders in the Trust Investment Community
