High school graduation rates for First Nations, Métis Nation and Inuit people remain low, particularly at federally-funded schools on reserves. As a result, too many Indigenous youth find themselves with little opportunity once they leave school.

That’s why, in 2008, the Martin Family Initiative launched the Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneurship Program (AYEP), a program for Grades 11 and 12 students, designed to introduce Indigenous students to the wide range of business opportunities available within the Canadian economy. The curriculum teaches students how entrepreneurs and other businesspeople recognize opportunities, generate ideas, and organize resources to plan successful ventures. Indigenous youth learn the perspective and skills required to achieve success in secondary school, the workplace, post-secondary education or training programs, and in daily life.
