All Aboriginal People from all First Nations and communities are encouraged to apply to the NW-ACE Program
It is the right program at the right time with the right partner.
It is the right program designed to provide you with the skills to start a business, allowing you full economic participation as an Aboriginal Business owner plugging in to the many exciting projects under way in our traditional territories.
It is the right time for this program as the number and size of projects in the North has never been greater, and corporations doing business on our lands have never been more welcoming to engage with Aboriginal owned businesses in the development and operational phases of their projects.
The right partner is the University of Victoria’s Gustavson School of Business with a unique expertise in teaching and mentoring people like you on how to start and run a successful business
