First Nations launch technology summit – Electronic Products & Technology

February 9, 2023

For the first time ever, Canada will play host to a national gathering designed for the tech sector, entrepreneurs and Indigenous leaders. Produced by the Sioux Lookout Friendship Accord (SLFA), The Technology and Indigenous Development Summit (TIDsummit) 2023 will kick-off on National Indigenous Peoples Day, June 21, 2023 at Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

The ground-breaking two-day conference will include panels, keynotes and breakout sessions focusing on finding solutions to the problems facing Canadians in remote communities.
