Indigenous Affairs & Canada’s Territories

Our Position

Members of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce recognize the importance of Indigenous peoples’ social and economic development interests to their success and that of the country. They advocate policies they believe will provide additional economic development options and opportunities for Canada’s Indigenous peoples and our overall competitiveness.

Canada needs economic strength in all of its regions to compete. Reducing the dependence of Canada’s territories on the federal government for financial transfers and jobs will improve our national competitiveness. With the right tools, business in the territories can make economic growth and increased independence from the federal government happen.
