There are not enough Indigenous finance and management professionals to meet the evolving needs of Indigenous communities and their economic partners. Indigenous communities require their own corporate services to take full advantage of their economic rights and chart a course for self-determination. Indigenous finance and management professionals can empower their communities to take on bigger and bolder equity stakes in economic projects.

More Indigenous finance and management professionals are needed to advance economic reconciliation in Canada. Whether it is planning projects with diverse interest groups, managing wealth, or helping to explain community values and priorities, they have a critical role to play that benefits companies, governments, and Indigenous communities alike.

To grow the professions, recruitment and training initiatives must inspire youth and include more Indigenous case studies and role models. Corporate Canada also has an important supporting role to play through direct employment and community partnerships.
