The objective of the Fund is to stimulate economic development activities of Métis people and communities by providing equity for Métis businesses, supporting community economic development initiatives and developing management skills of new and existing Métis business owners and entrepreneurs. To achieve this, the Fund provides programs for start-ups, expansions, and to purchase existing businesses.
The Fund’s eight programs have been designed to reflect the business needs of Saskatchewan’s Métis entrepreneurs. The Fund is set up to assist community-based or individual entrepreneurs with small or large scale projects. There are also specific programs designed to assist Women and Youth to help increase their participation as entrepreneurs.
