Michelle Cameron, Dreamcatcher Promotions , shared a sentiment that
Indigenous businesses across the country feel, Reconciliation is central to her
"It is everything," she said. "It is the foundation of how we grow as a community — not just the Indigenous community, but all of us. We all play a part in reconciliation and doing business and moving forward."
Darrell Brown owns Kisik Commercial Furniture. He says Indigenous-owned
businesses can be just as competitive as others, if given the chance.
Refer to the CBC article :
"We know how to do business. We're very good at it. All we need is the door open, and you listen to us and give us a chance, and we'll show you what we can do."
