Gender-Based Analysis of Inuit Women-Owned Business
Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada (Pauktuutit) conducted a study interviewing 30 Inuit Women Business Owners (IWBO), as well as 15 Economic Development Officers (EDO) and other Service Providers, in Inuit Nunangat and southern urban centres during March and April of 2021.
The purpose of this consultation was to better understand the needs, priorities, challenges, and gaps for Inuit women’s economic development so that Pauktuutit can better support Inuit women and advocate on their behalf.
The interviews established business profiles and explored themes including how success is defined, how best practices are incorporated into business decisions, the influence of gender and culture on business, challenges and opportunities, and access to support and resources.
