Our Mandate

The Aboriginal Business and Investment Council’s (ABIC) mandate is to help improve Aboriginal participation in the economy and promote economic certainty in the province by encouraging economic growth in Aboriginal communities.

ABIC’s strategic objectives are to advance Aboriginal peoples’ participation in the economy by:

  • Identifying successful businesses and partnerships between Aboriginal communities and investors, and identifying ways that they can be replicated in BC;
  • Helping act as a conduit for Aboriginal associations and communities to voice their issues to the Province;
  • Providing investors with a forum to engage and partner with BC First Nations and Aboriginal people; and
  • Encouraging relationships between Aboriginal communities, industry and government to implement practical measures for economic development.
