Indigenous entrepreneurs are significant members of the nation-building process. Their contributions and participation, perspectives, and opinions have great importance in formulating the developmental programs for Canada.
The CanadianSME Indigenous Entrepreneur of the Year award is a recognition of the hurdles they have overcome in manifesting their dreams into reality, an honoring of building successful businesses that contribute to the development of the community and an acknowledgement of their strive towards economic reconciliation.
The platform is an opportunity to make wider connections in the industry, explore the possibilities their businesses can become, and recognize their achievements. An award in hand is always a positive sign of the things that you have achieved that can enhance your name in the industry.
