In this blog we will be discussing the ever growing sector of Indigenous women in business by exploring two studies, Indigenous Women in Business in Atlantic Canada, published in Oct. 2020 and Entrepreneurship Among First Nations Women in the Atlantic Regionpublished in April 2014.
Through the analysis of these two studies, we will compare the challenges faced by Indigenous women entrepreneurs, explore what needs to be done to encourage and assist entrepreneurs and discuss how this sector is stimulating the Atlantic economy.
According to the 2020 study, Indigenous women are starting businesses at twice the rate of Canadian women with most being sole proprietors of which are part-time, seasonal, home-based businesses.
