Business Workshops

Creating and running a business requires many different components, tools and resources. Operating a business in the North is especially a unique situation and can be difficult. As such, there is a need for Inuit-specific, culturally relevant supports that can help Inuit women get started in their business ventures and/or expand their businesses.

These business development workshops have been created to help Inuit businesswomen, at all stages, strengthen their ideas, products and services. The workshops cover the basics of running a business anywhere in Canada, including the North, as well as insights from Inuit businesswomen on what helped them get started.

The specific topics presented in the business development workshops include:
