Discover local First Nations, Inuit, and Métis businesses open to serve you during the COVID-19 Crisis.

Coronavirus' impact on Indigenous businesses

Why is consumer support for Indigenous business important during this time?

  • There are over 50,000 Indigenous businesses in Canada and 99% of them are small- or medium-sized enterprises, which are being hardest hit by the pandemic
  • Indigenous businesses on-reserve face unique barriers at this time because of the lack of broadband and infrastructure that enables e-commerce
  • Main sources of financing for privately- or community-owned Indigenous businesses are retained earnings, private savings, or development corporations – not traditional lenders
