Canada’s demographic landscape is shifting
By 2031, more than 1 in 3 Canadians will be aboriginal or minority. Today, Toronto and Vancouver are close to 50% aboriginal and minority.
Minority and aboriginal consumers are an important economic force and strategic corporations recognize that their future success is tied to the economic success of minority and aboriginal communities.
Over the past 15 years, aboriginal peoples and minorities have been buying and starting businesses significantly faster than the Canadian average.
Successful aboriginal and minority businesses create employment in aboriginal and minority communities, expand the tax base, and boost competitiveness.
CAMSC enables your company to reach out to the fastest growing group of businesses in Canada to access the potential innovation, competitiveness, responsiveness, source of labour and market-knowledge that aboriginal and minority-owned businesses offer.
