Youth now represent nearly half the Indigenous population in Canada. These young people are at exciting times in their lives and many are planning to, or already do, attend post-secondary education. As well, Indigenous entrepreneurship, in general, but especially for youth, has been on the rise since 2000. That business arena is growing at a rate that is six times faster than entrepreneurship among non-Indigenous people. Indigenous entrepreneurs tend to be about 10 years younger than their non-Indigenous peers.
