As we walk the road of reconciliation together, the Government of Canada remains strongly committed to creating economic opportunities for Indigenous businesses and communities.
Today, René Arseneault, Parliamentary Secretary to the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages and Minister responsible for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), announced that the Government of Canada, through ACOA, is investing more than $6.1 million in 12 projects that support Indigenous businesses and communities across Atlantic Canada. This will help Indigenous partners to innovate, grow and play a major role in the region’s economic recovery.
