The Lil’wat Nation would like to congratulate those community members who participated in and finished the Aboriginal Business and Entrepreneurial Skills Training Program (BEST!!!). It was a 12 day course, delivered over four weeks at the Ts’zil Learning Centre and included presentations from local community entrepreneurs, financing agencies from Vancouver, and band staff as guest speakers. Special thanks to Loretta Stager, who delivered the program to the highest level, and congratulations to Jojo Joseph, who won our Business Plan/Presentation Contest, and will represent our class in Vancouver at the “Best of the BEST” awards ceremony, competing against winners from 10 other programs being delivered across BC.
We hope to deliver similar training programs in the future, so keep your eyes peeled!
