Promise and Prosperity (2016): Qualitative Research with Aboriginal Businesses in Ontario
In partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Indigenous Relations and
Reconciliation, CCAB embarked on the 2016 Promise
and Prosperity: Qualitative Research with Aboriginal Businesses in Ontario,
to expand on themes from past research. This report explores opportunities
and challenges faced by Aboriginal businesses including financing, skills
training and digital connectivity.
Through a mix of focus groups and in-depth individual interviews, CCAB’s
goal is to develop a deeper understanding of how these issues affect Aboriginal
businesses. Ultimately, CCAB hopes the findings will be widely used by
Aboriginal communities and governments, as well as mainstream businesses
and governments, to understand how they can most effectively support
Aboriginal businesses in Ontario.
