Community Economic Development Program

The Community Opportunity Readiness Program addresses the financial needs of Aboriginal communities when they are in pursuit of, and wish to participate in, an economic opportunity. The program is a consolidation of the former community economic opportunities program, the major projects investment fund, and the community-based components of the Aboriginal business development program.

By helping communities become equipped to participate in an economic opportunity, AANDC can increase the participation of Aboriginal people in Canada's economy overall and improve the prosperity of Aboriginal communities and individuals.
