Morning Talks FM-FSI - « Sustainable finance: A financial leverage for indigenous peoples »

Context 
Throughout the year, the finance and sustainable initiative (FSI) organizes events, webinars, and workshops to allow the Quebecois community to gather, discuss topical issues and move forward together towards sustainable finance in Quebec.

Description 
On June 17th, Finance Montreal's Sustainable Finance Initiative is hosting a webinar in collaboration with the Aboriginal Business Credit Corporation to discuss new opportunities to build stronger partnerships with Aboriginal peoples by investing directly in their communities, particularly in First Nations housing. 

Without appropriate financing, it can be difficult to finance projects with private capital in the absence of an enabling intervention. Blended financing techniques and appropriate ownership arrangements must therefore be an important consideration in promoting affordable housing in Aboriginal communities. 

Together, our speakers will discuss the financing of this vast project where a network of Aboriginal lenders with more than $3 billion in commercial loans to its credit is proposing to act as a financial intermediary between the financial markets and Aboriginal borrowers. This is an evolving issue, in which sustainable finance will play a key role.
