The indigenous market, (people, communities and their businesses), represent a significant untapped customer base for those who wish to supply the goods and services that will be consumed when investments are made to close the infrastructure gap that exists between Indigenous and non indigenous communities. Investments required in industry to transition to a carbon neutral economy will create new opportunities for inclusion and engagement.
The current mandate and collaboration of several government departments to achieve the goal of having 5% of all government spending will have a significant impact on the growth and sustainability of Indigenous business. Within the procurement continuum ITFC believes what’s missing is a national directory of Indigenous businesses and a platform that shares and matches procurement opportunities.
Supplier diversity programs that promote an inclusive approach to procurement play a significant role in addressing social injustice. ITFC is taking a leadership role in identifying, engaging and connecting Indigenous communities and Indigenous businesses with non-Indigenous business community.
