The Inuit-led initiative will pilot in two communities, to train Inuit community members and identify entrepreneurship and small business opportunities. By supporting the professional development of regional entrepreneurs, small business owners and managers, the program aims to lead to an innovative approach to Indigenous community-based entrepreneurship and small business development that can be extended in subsequent years. The goal for this area of the larger strategy aims to reach all 13 communities in the Qikiqtaaluk region of Nunavut, and more broadly to other regions and to other sectors of the northern economy.
