Atlantic Aboriginal Economy Building Strategy (AAEBS)

Photo Gallery

The Atlantic Aboriginal Economy Building Strategy (AAEBS), also known as the “Chiefs’ Strategy,” helping to build prosperous, autonomous, and sustainable Nations.

There are four priorities for this strategy:  
1) To build the net worth of Aboriginal communities by increasing Aboriginal control of land, resources and property throughout Atlantic Canada.  
2) To strengthen Aboriginal Peoples businesses so that ownership, income, and employment from businesses are comparable to non-Aboriginal rates. 
3) To develop a skilled Aboriginal workforce that can fully participate in the regional economy.     

4) To establish and maintain sound baseline information on the Atlantic Aboriginal economy, that provides evidence of progress and opportunity.
