Empower Indigenous Leaders

Ch’nook encourages and supports business education opportunities for Indigenous people throughout B.C. through a wide range of programs and activities. The Advanced Management Program provides business management skills to individuals from the Indigenous community with at least five years of work experience and a strong desire to start and manage business activities.

Empower Indigenous Leaders

The Ch’nook Indigenous Business Education initiative was created at the UBC Sauder School of Business in 2002 to increase the number of students engaged in meaningful business studies across British Columbia. Since then, Ch’nook has become a leading organization in the development and encouragement of business education for Indigenous learners.
