The Saskatchewan and Canadian business landscape is changing. Aboriginal Entrepreneurs and Businesses are making bigger impacts in the business community and this trend will continue. This course is intended to provide knowledge about the unique environment in which aboriginal owned businesses operate. This unique environment creates some interesting opportunities and even more unexpected challenges. The impact of treaties, the Indian Act, Land Claim Settlements and other issues are all discussed in the context of their impact on economic development for aboriginal peoples. This course also examines the best practices related to the legal structures, governance models and management systems of aboriginal businesses by studying successful aboriginal businesses and communities. These case studies focus on Western Canada and specifically Saskatchewan.
