The Northern Entrepreneurship Workshop Proceedings and Report: Fostering entrepreneurship in the North

By Carolee Buckler, Audra Krueger, Greg Poelzer, Laura Normand on May 5, 2009
Capacity building is an on-going challenge in many Northern communities and regions, particularly entrepreneurial and leadership skill development. It is widely recognized that the development of entrepreneurial skills is essential for the development of a self-reliant, prosperous North. Over the past several years, Aboriginal, educational, government and industry stakeholders have identified entrepreneurial training as a gap in capacity building that needs to be addressed in the North. This workshop report is the start of a process geared to skills training and knowledge translation in this critical area.
