Former AFN Chief National Chief Phil Fontaine is now a cannabis industry executive.
He has spent the last year travelling the country and talking to First Nations about jobs, wealth and training opportunities the cannabis business could bring to communities.
Fontaine says its exciting because communities are able to enter the industry from its launch instead of fighting to catch up years later as has traditionally been the case.
Fontaine is the CEO of Indigenous Roots, a medical marijuana company operated by and for First Nations across Canada.
The company is a joint venture with Cronos Group, a medial-marijuana grower licensed by Health Canada.
