Aboriginal Economic Partnerships branch supports Aboriginal economic development by facilitating economic partnerships among Aboriginal communities, industry, governments and other stakeholders.
The First Nations Economic Partnerships Initiative was the first program of its kind in Canada and in 2010 was awarded national “Innovative Management Award” by the Institute of Public Administration of Canada. Together Alberta Aboriginal Relations and Human Services (Employment and Immigration) committed $4.95 million to facilitate new partnerships and support entrepreneurs. Increasing Aboriginal participation in the province’s economy is a priority for the Government of Alberta.
Results of these and related activities can be found in the Aboriginal Economic Partnerships Annual Results Reports.
