Historical Background

It was in June 2002, that a symposium entitled “Gateway to Building Economic Channels” took place between the Cree Nation leaders and the business people of Abitibi-Témiscamingue.

This symposium proved very successful and revealed a high potential for building alliances between both populations with respect and in the spirit of the “Paix des Braves” Agreement and Cree empowerment.

The Secretariat to the Cree Nation Abitibi-Témiscamingue Economic Alliance was therefore created as a non-profit organization to act and follow-up on the contacts and projects arising from the symposium.


The Secretariat’s mission is to promote sustainable relations and socio-economic alliances between the Cree Nation (Eeyou Istchee), Jamésie, Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Nunavik regions in order to foster harmonious development.


Respect cultural, linguistic and territorial differences.

Promote business relationships based on comprehension of the local expectations, cooperation, respect and trust.
