  • Is your Indigenous-owned business planning to export, or already selling abroad?
  • Do you want to build a stronger relationship with the Indigenous business community?
  • Are you trying to strengthen and diversify your supply chains in a time of global uncertainty?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, take note: Canadian businesses have long been urged to engage in business and economic reconciliation. But maybe the most compelling reason to develop stronger ties between Indigenous and non-Indigenous companies is the enormous opportunity these partnerships offer.

As the fastest-growing segment in Canada, the 60,000 First Nations, Métis and Inuit-owned businesses comprise a significant part of Canada’s gross domestic product (GDP). Indigenous-owned companies are an essential—and rapidly expanding—part of Canada’s business landscape.

A better working relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations in Canada supports economic sovereignty and social well-being for everyone. And these partnerships can help secure the future of your business that you’ve worked so hard to build.
