The Township of Langley takes pride in creating opportunities for business and our community to thrive. To promote economic reconciliation and shared prosperity, since 2017 the Township has been the host location of Advanced Business Match (ABM) – Lower Mainland, an annual business matching forum connecting indigenous and non-indigenous businesses. The Township, Kwantlen First Nation and event-organizer Raven Events, collaborate to welcome businesses from across the region for meaningful connections, and for focused business development. ABM’s model strives to remove geographic barriers, increase opportunities through business-matching and meeting-scheduling software, reduce networking costs, and to illuminate new possibilities. The partnership between Kwantlen First Nation, Raven Events, and the Township of Langley demonstrates the value-proposition of collaboration for economic reconciliation, shared prosperity, and communities’ success.
