Growth Of Aboriginal Business In British Columbia


Aboriginal entrepreneurship was growing at a faster rate in British Columbia, as compared with the rest of Canada.

In fact, British Columbia had the second highest rate of Aboriginal entrepreneurship in the country. 22% of Canada’s self-employed Aboriginal people residing in the province.

On and off reserve numbers:

60% of B.C.’s Aboriginal people lived in urban areas, while 14% lived rural B.C., and just over a quarter lived on reserve.

It was a different picture for Aboriginal entrepreneurship: only 19% of Aboriginal businesses reported that they had their business on a reserve.

Watch out Canada, Aboriginal people are rapidly making their business acumen known!
