Charlotte Larocque, chair of IANE Westman, said that this was the third year a luncheon had been held, replacing a one-day annual conference.
Those chosen to receive a Champion of Aboriginal Employment award had to demonstrate four main criteria: being a role model, being innovative, being committed, and being a change agent.
The winners were:
• Dave Mills from A&W on 18th Street; presented by Amie Martin
• Sandra Wallace from the City of Brandon Employee; presented by Sarah Hobson
• Jim Ferguson, educator; presented by Dayle Hughson
