Indigenous business directory


The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority invites Indigenous entrepreneurs and businesses to register with our Indigenous business directory. The objective of the directory is to help us learn more about Indigenous businesses and establish a listing of Indigenous entrepreneurs and organizations that would like to do business with us. Registration helps us to better communicate with Indigenous entrepreneurs and organizations about potential port-related business opportunities. To be considered an Indigenous business one of the following criteria must be met:

  1. At least 51% of the business is owned and controlled by Indigenous people, and at least one third of the employees are Indigenous.

  2. If the business is a sole proprietorship, it must be wholly owned by an Indigenous person.

  3. In the case of a joint venture or consortium, at least 51% of the joint venture or consortium must be controlled and beneficially owned by an Indigenous business or businesses, as defined above. Additionally, at least one-third of the value of the work performed under a contract is completed by an Indigenous business, either by the Indigenous partner/contractor or by an Indigenous sub-contractor.
Special consideration may be given to those entrepreneurs or businesses affiliated with Indigenous groups who share an interest in the lands and waters managed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.
