Aboriginal BEST

Aboriginal BEST takes off again for 2016-17

Due to the success of the Aboriginal Business and Entrepreneurship Skills Training (BEST) program over the past 10 years, the program has received funding approval once again to continue this fiscal year in BC. Last year, 240 Aboriginal people in BC took part in the business preparedness program. And a number of them took part in the BEST of the BEST Business Plan competition held in Vancouver in mid-April.

If your community or organization would like to host a BEST, please go to . More information will be available in Mid-June.

Aboriginal BEST is funded by the Canada-BC Labour Market Agreement, with other contributions from Vancity Credit Union.
