Watch what decision-makers think about ABM!

ABM is based on the belief that building effective business relationships between Aboriginal communities and the private sector is imperative to the future of Canada’s economy, and society as a whole.

ABM is Aboriginal-driven. Its primary goal is to benefit Aboriginal communities in their pursuit of prosperity and independence.

ABM aims to attract those companies that are in tune with the vast opportunities and unique characteristics of Aboriginal economic development or those companies that want to learn. The ABM Steering Committees therefore carefully select exhibitors and not all applicants will be successful.

ABM connects Aboriginal communities with the private sector to create opportunities for business. At each event delegates initiate new business deals worth over $30 million. This makes ABM the most powerful Aboriginal-driven business development event in Canada.

Building on the success of 2014, we are now growing ABM BC into ABM West inviting Aboriginal community decisions makers from BC and Alberta to join us in Penticton. 

ABM SK will grow into ABM Prairies to include communities from Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

In addition we are preparing ABM East which will be held in Ontario.

Watch to learn how ABM works!

ABM delegates use a technology-driven online tool to set up as many as 31 pre-qualified appointments that are 20 minutes in length.

Over a two-day period at the event, these appointments keep the conversation focused and efficient and help determine next steps if a business match has been made or is possible.
