Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will sit down with Indigenous leaders and premiers on Oct. 3 in Ottawa.

According to a release sent by the Prime Minister’s Office, the meeting will concentrate on economic development in Indigenous communities.

During the same time period, Trudeau will meet with premiers to also discuss sustainable economic growth.

At some point, Trudeau, premiers and Indigenous leaders will be around the same table – but it’s not clear if the entire meeting is scheduled that way.

In July, Assembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami President Natan Obed and Metis National Council President Clement Chartier boycotted a meeting in Edmonton because they were not invited to the main meeting with premiers.

Only the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples and the Native Women’s Association of Canada attended.
