Supporting the Manitoba First Nation Business Community

A joint economic development initiative between the Manitoba government and the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) saw the creation of the First Peoples Economic Growth Fund Inc.

The collaborative process between AMC and Government of Manitoba identified the following seven program areas for the fund:

  • Business plan assistance,
  • Skills development,
  • Entrepreneur loans,
  • Community economic expansion loans,
  • Joint-venture investments, and
  • Professional support aftercare.
  • Resource & Energy Investment

"This important fund will act as a tool in helping to close the gap in the standard of living between First Nations and non-Aboriginal Manitobans," said Aboriginal and Northern Affairs Minister Oscar Lathlin. "I welcome the outstanding Manitobans who have agreed to serve on the board of directors to oversee the First Peoples Economic Growth Fund."
