Aboriginal Business Mentorship Program (ABMP)
CCAB’s Mentorship program pairs Aboriginal entrepreneurs with experienced mentors to help them take their business to the next level. Entreprenuers gain expert advice from industry leaders. Protégés choose the mentor that best fits their needs from a roster of available mentors.
Mentorship support is provided through one-on-one meetings between protégés and mentors or via email, telephone/Skype depending on the location of the participants. CCAB provides the initial introduction between matched participants. After that, all meetings are coordinated by the mentors and protégés directly.
