Indigenous women are a yet untapped engine of our economy. In Canada, Indigenous women are engaged in business twice as often as non-Indigenous women and thirty-nine percent (39%) of Indigenous businesses in Atlantic Canada are owned and operated by women. Although there is a scarcity of research investigating Indigenous women in business, more recent research has indicated that there are unique challenges faced by Indigenous business owners and those challenges are often more acute when faced by Indigenous women. This study captured both the challenges faced by Indigenous women in business and the strategies they utilized to overcome those challenges. Suggestions for improvements in policies and programs that would better nurture and support Indigenous women in their business ventures were also captured.
