Trade Accelerator Program – Indigenous Cohort Application Deadline

January 21

Women’s Enterprise Centre is a proud Marketing Partner of the Trade Accelerator Program!

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)!
