The training includes workshops, mentoring, one-on-one business training, referrals and follow up. It also includes a coaching component for those requiring additional one-on-one support for pre- and post-business start-up. 

"Mentorships and coaching are important pieces of any successful new business," says Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation Ida Chong. "This program will provide support and inspiration to about 435 
Aboriginal entrepreneurs, setting them on a path to participate more fully in B.C.'s economy."
 
The program will be funded until March 31, 2014 and is expected to support approximately 435 people. It will be available at the NEABC as well as in Prince George and Cranbrook.
 
The announcement, made by Premier Christy Clark at the Success Through Sharing  Symposium in Vancouver, comes just days after B.C. Hydro announced $100,000 in funding for Aboriginal trades training in the region.
