Ron Evans has a long and storied career working with and within government organizations at all levels – municipal, provincial and federal government.
His resume reads as an extensive list of appointments and positions working with government and quasi-government agencies to support indigenous communities and businesses.
There is no other indigenous business development company in Canada offering the depth and breadth of government level experience.
And this experience can help businesses in a variety of ways:
If you are a company or business working with an indigenous community there may be regulations that you need to be aware of. There may also be grants and funding support available, that would not necessarily be widely known.
If you are seeking to work with an indigenous community or business there may be supports, materials or guides available that will help you in the start-up process.
If you employ indigenous workers or you work within an indigenous community, there are specific rules and recommendations outlined in the TRC Report that you must abide by. Failure to understand these rules could be costly in the long run.
You may want to develop a project on your own, but at times, having a government agency support your initiative from the start, can be beneficial (both financially and operationally).
Ron Evans Indigenous Solutions is aware of the departments and the organizations, understands their individual mandates, and can find the support networks that are relevant to your initiative.
It would be a waste not to access this knowledge prior to starting your project.
