Indigenous Business Centre of Excellence (IBCE) Feasibility Study

Aurora College’s FSC-funded project Indigenous Business Centre of Excellence (IBCE) Feasibility Study aimed to better understand needs, opportunities and best models in establishing an Indigenous Business Centre of Excellence (IBCE) at the NWT institution, as well as establishing a model for a two-year pilot.

The study is working to support the growth and sustainability of the Northern and Indigenous entrepreneurs and businesses. The goals of the project included the convening of a small group of experts and knowledge holders to move forward with a proposal for the IBCE, gaining community input, and determine models of Canadian Indigenous business centres for considerations in additional work.
