Aboriginal Entrepreneurship is booming in Canada! According to the latest Census Canada, data there are over 27,000 Aboriginal entrepreneurs in Canada. This is 30% more than the 1996–2001 period.

Improving Aboriginal peoples’ economic development potential is desirable not only for them, but also for Canada’s mainstream businesses and our nation’s economy. Canada’s Aboriginal peoples are young and their numbers are growing quickly compared to other Canadians. Demographic statistics in Canada’s First Nations peoples demonstrate this reality.
