The goal of the Strategic Partnerships Initiative (SPI) is to support the participation of Indigenous people in key sectors of the Canadian economy, such as agriculture, fishery, forestry, mining and energy. In Quebec, a specific initiative has been developed to encourage Indigenous people to get involved in northern development, particularly in major mining projects in the Labrador Trough. The initiative is called True North Treasure – Labrador Trough.
Check out the Aboriginal Business Directory (Web site not available in English) produced by the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Economic Development Commission (FNQLEDC) in collaboration with the First Nations of Quebec Business Network (FNQBN) as part of the True North Treasure Initiative.
