Aboriginal Canadians is a term that encompasses members of First Nations tribes, Inuit, and Métis. These are distinct groups, but one thing they have is common is that there is government money available in Canada for business needs. In fact, the federal government has an online tool to search for government money.
Indigenous Australians have access to government money to help start, operate, or expand a business. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders constitute about 2.5% of Australia’s population, but are underrepresented as business owners and have higher rates of unemployment than the overall rate among all Australians. To help remedy these situations, government money is available at both the
One of your resources for grant funding is foundation grants, so knowing a little about how they work and what gets funded can unlock a vast resource of grant money. We’re going to look at a representative sample of foundation funding. These figures are for what was given out in the United States in a recent year, but many of the categories are similar to the types of foundation grants that
Learning a second language can be beneficial to you in a number of ways. There can be government grants to help you become bilingual or better, and knowing multiple languages can help you be better qualified for government grants or scholarships. There are plenty of advantages to knowing more than one language too. You may have the opportunity to study a new language at a college, in adult education classes, in community outreach programs, or other venues.
The key to receiving grant funding is the grant proposal.

In past times, workers typically stayed in their chosen career from the time after school, until retirement. In our changing economy, though, that’s becoming less common.
You may have heard of agricultural government grants and figured that they are for the giant conglomerates and huge corporate farms. This is true in some cases, but sometimes there are also government grants for beginning farmers or for small farms to expand. This type of government grant is often available because it (like veterans’ benefits) is something that the lawmakers do not want to defund, due to public sentiment
I get a lot of questions about government grant proposals, and I’ve reviewed a fair number of them. I’ve seen some instances where people want to make a grand political statement as part of their government grant request or making the basis of their funding request kind of a pushback against some public policy that they don’t agree with.
We all go into business to be successful. We imagine that we’ll start humbly, then as word gets out about what a great product or service we have, then we’ll have lots of customer. Then, often with the help of government business grants, we’ll expand and maybe even franchise our wildly popular business. Even for the most practical and pragmatic entrepreneurs, it’s easy to let these
One of the keys to succeeding in business is scaling your product or service optimally and tapping into new potential markets. Even if what you are selling is a niche offering (of potential appeal to just a particular segment of the market), this niche may exist outside of your own country. For example, if your primary product is sails for sailboats, that’s a select group
