Aboriginal Business Canada is an Industry Canada program that promotes the growth of commerce as one means towards economic self-sufficiency for all Aboriginal people.

Thousands of Aboriginal entrepreneurs got their start or expanded their operations with help from Aboriginal Business Canada. First Nations, Métis and Inuit business and financial institutions have also established services, and developed and strengthened their networks to create a driving force in the economy of Canada's First Peoples.

Aboriginal Business Canada is an Industry Canada program that promotes the growth of commerce as one means towards economic self-sufficiency for all Aboriginal people.
Aboriginal Business Canada (ABC) provides financial assistance, information, resource materials and referrals to other possible sources of financing or business support.

Clients must be individuals of Canadian Indian (on or off-reserve), Métis or Inuit heritage, or majority-owned Aboriginal organizations or development corporations.

We also work in partnership with Aboriginal financial and business organizations, and with a range of other agencies, boards and departments on initiatives that are helping to strengthen business skills and promote greater awareness of Aboriginal business achievement.

In this way, we are working towards the shared goal of an inclusive and prosperous economy for all Canadians.
