Authors: Michael Bassett & John Graham

Commissioned by Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC), this web-based publication was designed by the Institute to systematically capture the knowledge and insights of economic development experts, many of whom were about to retire from the public service. Based on The IOG Memory Stick Program: Capturing Corporate Wisdom for Future Leaders, it covers numerous economic development issues, ranging from business development - to employment - to tourism, and provides useful information and links for economic development officers across governments and in First Nation and Inuit communities.
