Introducing the Indigenous Growth Fund. Canada’s newest and largest Indigenous Impact Investment Fund

$150M, with initial investment from the Government of Canada, the Business Development Bank of Canada, Farm Credit Canada and Export Development Canada.

The IGF offers institutional and impact investors a direct vehicle to contribute to economic reconciliation and ensure that AFIs can continue to support Indigenous business clients in their communities, unlocking a pent-up loan demand for new and expanding Indigenous businesses.

Together, panelists will explore the unique structure of the Indigenous Growth Fund and the barriers that were overcome to make it a reality. We will hear how a recent $10 million dollar investment from the IGF will advance NEDC’s work on Vancouver Island, and the impact IGF capital will have on their Indigenous business clients.
