This study shows that Atlantic Indigenous business revenues were valued at $1.6 billion in 2016. Indigenous firms are growing rapidly, creating jobs and income for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous workers. APEC’s report highlights factors that could further their growth.

Workforce talent recruitment and retention is one of the most urgent issues facing the Atlantic region. In the next decade, the Canadian economy is expected to offer significant opportunities for employment. Those opportunities reflect both Canada’s emergence as a knowledge economy and the impact of retirement from the workforce of the baby boomer generation. An expectation exists that future demand for a skilled labour force will be serviced, in part, by an increasing Indigenous workforce.

Nationally, the number of Indigenous business owners and entrepreneurs is growing at five times the rate of self-employed Canadians overall.

The intention of this project is to bring together a group of Elders from around the Atlantic region in order for them to guide the APCFNC (and others) on the development of protocols, ethics and guidelines on how Traditional Knowledge and Aboriginal world views can be incorporated into research which guides community economic development. These protocols, ethics and guidelines could be used for other areas of research as well.

Provincial governments in the Atlantic Provinces are adopting aggressive renewable energy targets and strategies to meet those targets. Are First Nations participating in the renewable energy sector? If not, what are the barriers to that participation and how can we overcome those barriers. Several First Nations have begun to identify renewable energy opportunities and are working to meet renewable energy targets set by their respective provinces. What can we learn from them?
