CESO has been partnering with Indigenous communities since 1969. Today, we continue to work with Indigenous entrepreneurs, communities and leadership to improve the lives of Indigenous peoples across Canada by building capacity in order to build sustainable economic growth and social stability.
We are committed to providing Indigenous communities and businesses with flexible and affordable full-service solutions to support their development.
Economic reconciliation is at the heart of what we do at CESO. With over 50 years of experience working with Indigenous communities across Canada, we understand the complexity and diversity of their resources and needs. We work in partnership with Indigenous peoples to build human capacity to create environments where members of Indigenous communities can fully participate and benefit from economic growth.
We work through highly-skilled experts from across public and private sectors, from a multitude of industries, who mentor and advise Indigenous leaders, entrepreneurs, and communities in
achieving their goals.
The services we provide are tailored to the needs and resources of the business and/or community. Our experts are ready and available to support a wide range of projects, including:
