Supporting the Manitoba First Nation Business Community
FPEGF Programs

Guiding Principles:

  • The Fund will only support those projects that are economically viable and provide a positive return on investment to First Nations entrepreneurs, communities and FPEGF.
  • Leveraging other investment dollars is critical to the growth of the First Nation's economy and must be demonstrated by every business proposal presented to FPEGF.
  • Capacity building will be an important criteria in the decision-making processes, be it human capital, infrastructure or community capacity.
  • Job creation, long-term and sustainable employment opportunities, in areas where there is high unemployment.
  • A portion of the Fund will be targeted for projects originating in rural and northern Manitoba.
  • All businesses receiving funding will have to meet or exceed prevailing environmental and health standards.
  • FPEGF, while looking to assist businesses of high economic return, will also consider the needs of the applicants; in general, applications of exceptional merit with the greatest need will receive the highest priority.
