National Aboriginal Trust Training Program is an online course available for The National Aboriginal Trust Officers Association (NATOA) members and non-members designed to explore and build knowledge about trusts and investments for Indigenous people by Indigenous people.
NATOA is a charity organization, and is committed to providing the Aboriginal Peoples of Canada with the resources and information that will help them efficiently create, manage, and operate trusts as a means to ensure that the seven generations, yet unborn, can benefit from the goals and dreams of the present generation.
As more and more Aboriginal governments, organizations and communities establish trusts to hold and manage the funds obtained from their claims (land claims, treaty land entitlement, hydro claims) or business activities, it is critical to ensure these funds are prudently and responsibly managed and that structures are in place to reflect particular aspirations and objectives of an individual community.
Upon successful completion of the National Aboriginal Trust Training Program, you will:
- understand how to get assistance with trusts and investing.
- know the mandate and goals of NATOA.
- be familiar with the NATOA Board of Directors and how they are elected.
- know the roles of the three operating committees.
- obtain a Recognition of Participation certificate.
