OTTAWA – AFOA Canada (formerly the Aboriginal Financial Officer Association of Canada) is pleased to announce the 2017 recipients of the MNP-AFOA Canada Excellence in Aboriginal Leadership Award who will be recognized Thursday, February 9th during the AFOA 17th Annual National Conference at The Hyatt Regency Hotel in Calgary.

The MNP-AFOA Canada Excellence in Aboriginal Leadership National Award is presented to Chief Frieda Martselos, Salt River First Nation 195, Northwest Territories.

“It is an honour to receive the MNP-AFOA Canada Excellence in Aboriginal Leadership Award,” said Chief Frieda Martselos. “We’ve come a long way at Salt River First Nation since 2007, overcoming challenges typical of many First Nations across Canada, trying to do what’s best for our Membership as a whole. We always believe in doing the right thing, no matter what. Transparency and accountability are essential to serve the grassroots, and preserve our Treaty Settlement Agreement for current and future generations.”

The MNP-AFOA Canada Excellence in Aboriginal Leadership Regional Award will be presented to Dawn Madahbee Leach, General Manager, Waubetek Business Development Corporation, Birch Island, Ontario.

“I am extremely humbled to receive the MNP-AFOA Canada Excellence in Aboriginal Leadership Award,” said Dawn Madahbee Leach. “Our collective efforts in advancing Indigenous people in the fields of economic development, business and finance is one of the most effective means of building our capacity to secure the future of our people, our lands and our rightful place in Canada’s economy. Through our work, we can make a difference in building hope for our youth, assisting with the good governance that our people expect and in providing the necessary services our communities require. I am sincerely thankful for the good work of the AFOA and its members as they help us strive to make this positive impact. Miigwetch.”

The Excellence in Aboriginal Leadership Awards were created in 2004. They are designed to recognize and celebrate Inuit, Métis and First Nation achievements in Aboriginal finance, management and leadership.

Award recipients are selected based on their vision for excellence and innovation, and have demonstrated advanced expertise, outstanding professionalism and leadership in the Aboriginal Community. Their contributions rise above and beyond their job descriptions to enrich the lives of Aboriginal people, communities and all Canadians. Recipients have been nominated by their peers, selected through a committee and approved by the AFOA Canada Board of Directors. Recipients are recognized in one of two categories;

The National Award recognizes individuals who have made a tremendous impact at a national or institutional level.

The Regional Award recognizes individuals who have consistently demonstrated leadership at a community or regional level.
