Apply to be part of this special Trade Accelerator Program (TAP) in partnership with the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB), specifically designed for Indigenous-owned businesses.
The Indigenous economy has undergone a period of sustained growth in recent years. According to the 2016 Census, there are over 50,000 self-employed Indigenous Peoples across Canada. There are also over 250 Indigenous economic development corporations, which are community-owned firms designed to generate wealth and jobs for community members. As of 2016, Indigenous Peoples contribute over $30 billion annually to Canada’s GDP.
If you are a First Nations, Métis, or Inuit-owned business, we encourage you to participate in the first-ever Indigenous focused cohort of the Trade Accelerator Program (TAP)!
