Toronto, July 31, 2007 - On October 11, 2007 the Canadian Aboriginal Minority Supplier Council (CAMSC) will recognize the achievements of Canada's Aboriginal and minority entrepreneurs as well as honouring the leadership and commitment of some of Canada's most successful corporations in their efforts to create a more dynamic and diverse supplier base.
CATA and CAMSC have forged a strategic alliance in pushing forward on two important entrepreneurial projects geared at creating diversity and opportunity in the supply chain and the development of entrepreneurial youth. "The collaboration between CATA and CAMSC is built on the principals of entrepreneurial development. There is a wealth of knowledge, innovation and leadership between the two organizations that makes this a strong partnership" says Katherine Thompson, Project Director for CATA.
The partnership between CATA and CAMSC has resulted in CATA being nominated for this year's Partnership Award. This award recognizes strategic alliances between non-profit organizations, industry associations or government ministries, Crown Corporations, or agencies intended to facilitate procurement opportunities with Aboriginal and Minority-owned businesses. Winners will be announced in September.
