Indigenizing Corporate Canada

This research focuses on career pathways for Indigenous professionals in finance and management.

As highlighted by recent Conference Board research, Indigenous finance and management professionals play a catalytic role in helping Indigenous communities and businesses access capital, broker partnerships, and manage their financial wealth. However, relative to the size of Canada’s Indigenous population, and given the growing demand for their services, Indigenous finance and management professionals continue to be underrepresented in Canada’s labour force.

This project will examine the major push and pull factors that shape career pathways for Indigenous professionals in finance and management. It will also identify associated career resources and supports that can assist Indigenous finance and management professionals as they establish their careers.
