COVID-19 Resources

On behalf of our clients, NADF welcomes Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's announcement on April 18, 2020 regarding the $306.8M Stimulus Package for Indigenous Businesses.  The stimulus package will be delivered across Canada through the National Aboriginal Capital Corporation Association (NACCA) and a network of 59 Aboriginal Financial Institutions (AFI), including NADF.  The Federal government and NACCA are working diligently to finalize details in the package that will ensure economic stability of Aboriginal businesses impacted by COVID-19.  We expect this to be available in the coming weeks and NADF will be reaching out to our clients when the package becomes available.  In the meantime, we thank you for your patience and encourage you to keep in contact with your Account Manager.
