About the Logo
The color yellow/gold represents the visionary, enlightenment on the medicine wheel, and signifies fertility, growth and prosperity as represented on the Métis sash.
Five business people hold hands around a business table signifies co-operation, and in the center is the sun, representing brightness and hope throughout our journey.
In the middle is a stylized canoe symbolizing trade.
In front of the canoe is one Indigenous paddle (pointed tip on the blade), sharing the journey with a trader paddle (with a wide rounded tip).
In order to achieve our goals and reach our destination, both paddles must work together in unison to move the canoe forward.
