Background of the organization
Founded in 2000, the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Economic Development Commission supports and accompanies organizations and First Nations working on community economic development.
There is substantial need for ongoing, personalized assistance in financial and housing literacy so First Nations can better access capital from other economic resources. This project will deploy an Indigenous-led mobile engagement team offering financial and housing literacy training and personalized follow-up. A proof-of-concept will be created to facilitate scaling out to other regions.
