Past boards


Max Skudra brings extensive experience working with Indigenous people, communities, and businesses to Mokwateh. He formerly led the research department for the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business, conducting in person research in over 250 First Nations, Inuit and Metis communities from Coast to Coast to Coast. His work has been used to create the Federal government’s 5% procurement target for Indigenous businesses, to justify the province of Ontario’s $120 million Indigenous Economic Development Fund (IEDF), and to set corporate strategy for companies like VIA Rail, BHP Billiton, the Toronto Stock Exchange and OPG. Max has worked with hundreds of First Nations, Metis, and Inuit communities, spending his time building relationships with a hands-on understanding of what it takes to create economic reconciliation.

Max served on the Working Committee developing the Indigenous chapter for the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). He was also a member of the Canadian Project Consultative Committee for The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), an international initiative for Indigenous economic development. Max has spoken at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation as well as Parliamentary Committees on Indigneous procurement.  With his professional experience and aptitude, Max is well qualified to successfully plan, conduct and present practical knowledge and research any project.
