The Banff Centre in Alberta offers a unique learning experience to First Nations through their Aboriginal Leadership and Management Programs. These programs assist in building capacity in First Nations to address many of the day-to-day challenges. The program facilitators have effectively managed to bring to the learning experience a blend of traditional values and modern management practices that is motivational, practical, and inspiring.
