The Northwest Aboriginal Canadian Entrepreneurs (NW-ACE) program provides business skill training in northern B.C. Indigenous communities. It took home the top prize at the Gold Global Best Awards ceremony in Oslo, Norway in September 2016 in recognition of the significant impact NW-ACE is having on the communities in which they operate.
The program is a partnership between Tribal Resources Investment Corporation (TRICORP), the Gustavson School of Business, industry and government, and representatives from Aboriginal communities.
The program provides Aboriginal Canadians in Northwest British Columbia with skills, knowledge and mentorship to start their own businesses.
The partnership is supported by funding from the Ministry of Advanced Education. Read more about the program’s success (uvic.ca) .
