Aboriginal-owned joint ventures

Aboriginal-owed enterprises create job opportunities and economic independence for individuals, collectives, and communities.

Strong, resilient and prosperous Aboriginal Nations need independent income streams and self-determined decision-making.

The Federation works towards this through co-ownership of for-profit companies under our subsidiary, Federation Enterprises.

These enterprises create jobs for Aboriginal people, and contribute to collective wealth for our communities.
