The Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC) would like to share a bit about the Northern WE in Tourism study, and the Indigenous women entrepreneurs in Canada’s North who are paving pathways to sustainable livelihoods for future generations.

ITAC in collaboration with Dr. Sonya Graci and the Diversity Institute at Toronto Metropolitan University are gathering with women entrepreneurs in the North to identify barriers and opportunities to entrepreneurship and business ownership for women.

If you would like to “Join a Circle” and share your story, we are facilitating confidential sharing circles in the Northwest Territories, Yukon, Nunavut, Northern Quebec, and Newfoundland/Labrador. To learn more about this important study visit us at

Our next sharing circles are happening on Wednesday January 11, 2023, for Indigenous women entrepreneurs in Yukon. We invite aspiring, start-up, scale-up and women who want to give others a hand-up to join us. 

For the 12:00 PM MST circle please register here.

For  the 6:00 PM MST circle please register here.

There are plenty of ways to have your voice heard when it comes to making recommendations on how to best support Indigenous women entrepreneurs in tourism in Canada’s north.

We’re here to listen and learn from you.

Led by the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC) and Dr. Sonya Graci, in partnership with the Future Skills Centre and the Diversity Institute at the Toronto Metropolitan University.

The Northern WE project is funded by the Government of Canada under the Future Skills program.
