Connecting with Aboriginal Businesses

The role of the Industry Participation Advocate will be expanded to advocate for Aboriginal businesses and the Office of the Industry Advocate will be working with Aboriginal businesses capable of supplying goods or services to government so they have every chance for success.  Aboriginal businesses have welcomed the support, particularly in better understanding government procurement approaches.  Leading by example, the IPA recently worked with an Aboriginal family owned business for the supply of promotional material for the Aboriginal Economic Participaption Initiative.
