Who We Are
NACCA, the National Aboriginal Capital Corporations Association, is a network of over 50 Aboriginal Financial Institutions (AFIs) dedicated to stimulating economic growth for Aboriginal people in Canada. The AFI network has provided over 45,000 loans totaling over $2.5 billion to businesses owned by First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people.
NACCA supports the network by building AFI capacity and fostering Aboriginal business development. NACCA’s goal is to provide opportunities for Aboriginal entrepreneurs and increase prosperity for Aboriginal people in Canada. These efforts increase social and economic self-reliance and sustainability for Aboriginal people and communities nationwide.
NACCA advocates for Aboriginal economic development by focusing on the following: representing the unified voice of AFIs; publishing national and regional results of AFI work; fostering partnerships and building capacity; and delivering the Aboriginal Entrepreneurship Program (AEP) products and services to AFIs.
NACCA models its core values in everything it does. The diverse network of AFIs believes that they are stronger together.
