Transcript: I’m an Aboriginal business owner and I want to expand my market and develop new product lines. Can ACOA help me put together a plan?
Hello, my name is Jackie and I work at ACOA.
Aboriginal businesses and communities are a growing economic force in the Atlantic Region.
For an Aboriginal entrepreneur like you who is looking to expand or modernize, ACOA’s Business Development Program can help. For example, it can help you with an unsecured, interest-free loan to develop new export markets, or help you bring more innovation into your business.
ACOA also offers a guide which highlights specific programs and services for Aboriginal entrepreneurs operating small and medium-sized businesses.
The Guide covers a variety of helpful business topics, such as starting your business, understanding taxes and managing human resources.
For more information on these and other resources best suited to your needs, contact the ACOA, Canada Business or Community Business Development Corporation office nearest you.
