Partnerships in Procurement: Understanding Aboriginal business engagement in the Marine and Aerospace industries in B.C.

Published: 2017 The marine and aerospace industries in Canada represent a significant, untapped opportunity for Indigenous businesses because these sectors procure coast-to-coast goods and services, often in the traditional territories of Indigenous communities. Increasing access to contracts, employment and knowledge transfer within these sectors would help strengthen Indigenous businesses, communities, and Canada’s economy as a whole. The marine and aerospace industries can also help diversify Indigenous businesses beyond traditionally successful sectors such as energy, mining and forestry.
