CCAB, the University of Saskatchewan, and SSHRC have partnered on a project about Indigenous economic development corporations and their experiences during the pandemic.
In the summer of 2022, CCAB advised Google Canada and the policy and research consultancy, Public First, on a survey of Indigenous businesses in Canada to inform the Google Canada Economic Impact Report (EIR) for 2021.
CCAB, in partnership with Toronto Metropolitan University’s Diversity Institute and the Future Skills Centre, mapped training institutions and interviewed Indigenous-owned/led training providers and non-Indigenous employers to compile a study on skills training, employment development, and funding prospects for Indigenous peoples in Canada.
CCAB, along with the National Aboriginal Capital Corporations Association (NACCA), and the National Indigenous Economic Development Board (NIEDB) undertook a third phase of the COVID-19 Indigenous Business Survey in the summer of 2021.
Indigenous businesses have the capacity to support supply chains across all industries. CCAB research investigates corporate and federal Indigenous procurement practices and their impact on Indigenous business.
