Business Services

AIIC’s business services are primarily focused on counselling and mentoring clients at all stages of business development; whether it be at the pre-business planning stage, business start up phase, or the operational stage of business.
 
In the pre-business planning stage, the goal is to assist the client conceptualizing their identified business opportunity, i.e. discussion on the business opportunity and how it will be developed in terms of market share, revenue sources, ownership structure, management, capital, financing, and equity requirements.  
 
In the business planning stage, we attempt to have the client involved as much as possible during the research and planning stage.  AIIC assistance here would be in accessing necessary expertise and compiling the business plan.
 
In the business start up phase, we provide counselling and mentoring as required or requested by the client.  The goal is to assist the client in focusing on executing their business plan.  
 
In the operational stage, we provide counselling and mentoring as required or requested by the client.  The goal is to assist in resolving identified operational deficiencies.  This may require accessing necessary expertise for assistance.  An example would be in assisting the client with their bookkeeping by providing basic accounting training, accounting set-up, and implementation to ensure it is an effective management tool in monitoring their business.
 
In all stages, an attempt is made to have the client participate in the cost of the business services.  
 
In addition to the above business services, AIIC business services is also involved in organizing business workshops throughout the province on topics addressing business planning, growing the business, and basic accounting.
 
Furthermore, AIIC is very interested in developing initiatives for First Nation youth that will create an awareness of entrepreneurship as an option in career planning.
