Aboriginal Business Mentorship Program (ABMP)

The application deadline for 2017 mentees has passed. Stay tuned for further information for 2018.

CCAB’s Mentorship program pairs Aboriginal entrepreneurs with experienced mentors to help them take their business to the next level. Entrepreneurs 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 in-person meetings between protégés and mentors or via email, telephone or 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.
