Business Equity Program


Tale’awtxw Aboriginal Capital Corporation (TACC) delivers the Business Equity Program (BEP) to Aboriginal entrepreneurs in the Coast Salish territory. 

The BEP will consider non-repayable contributions to Aboriginal entrepreneurs for eligible capital and business support to start, expand or acquire a viable business. Non-repayable contributions for business plans, marketing and other related business support services will also be considered. 

The BEP may contribute up to a maximum of $99,999 for individuals and incorporated businesses, and up to $250,000 for community owned businesses, based on a viable business plan and subject to other financing being in place.

Special Requirements

Clients must be individuals of Canadian Aboriginal heritage — Status or Non-status Indian (on or off-reserve), Métis or Inuit — or a majority-owned Aboriginal business, financial organization, or development corporation.

To be eligible for support, you should also be involved full-time with the proposed business in a management capacity and must be able to provide 15% cash equity to support the project.
