Our Mandate

The Indigenous Business and Investment Council’s (IBIC) mandate is to help improve Indigenous participation in the economy and promote economic certainty in the province by encouraging economic growth in Indigenous communities.

IBIC’s strategic objectives are to advance Indigenous peoples’ participation in the economy by:

  • Identifying successful businesses and partnerships between Indigenous communities and investors, and identifying ways that they can be replicated in BC;
  • Helping act as a conduit for Indigenous associations and communities to voice their issues to the Province;
  • Providing investors with a forum to engage and partner with BC First Nations and Indigenous people; and
  • Encouraging relationships between Indigenous communities, industry and government to implement practical measures for economic development.
