"Aboriginal economic development” differs from other forms of development by emphasizing aboriginal values and community involvement.

By understanding that limited availability of work, lack of training opportunities, distance from major economic centres and a variety of personal factors may be responsible for inconsistent work records, the interviewer can more accurately assess an Aboriginal candidate’s resume."

"Canadian Aboriginal women share this global experience of discrimination and violations of their fundamental rights, as evidenced by the high levels of violence against Aboriginal women, inadequate housing and income, and the low levels of employment, education, entrepreneurship and overall economic advancement. They rely more heavily on social assistance and are more likely to head up a single parent family than their male counterparts. Aboriginal women face socio- economic challenges unlike those faced by any other woman in the country."
