Become an Entrepreneur

NACCA supports First Nations, Métis, and Inuit entrepreneurs by providing funding for Indigenous businesses and communities through Indigenous Financial Institutions (IFIs). When entrepreneurs start new ventures, they take on all of the risks – and rewards – of launching that business.

A strong partnership between the entrepreneur and the local IFI is critical for success. In addition to developmental lending, IFIs provide support services such as business loans, non-repayable contributions, financial and management consulting, and business start-up and aftercare services.  Visit our IFI page to find your local financial institution, or use the form below to contacts us and we’ll help you out.
