NADF is your First Stop for Starting and Growing Indigenous Business


Thunder Bay – BUSINESS – When you are looking at Indigenous Business one of the best stops is at Nishnawbe Aski Development Fund.

Brian Davey is the NADF Executive Director.

NADF delivers programs and services to Aboriginal People and wholly-owned or majority-owned Aboriginal businesses located on or off-reserve in Northern Ontario, which we define as the territories of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation (Treaty 9 and Ontario portion of Treaty 5), Treaty 3 (Ontario portion), and Robinson-Superior 1850.

NADF is currently delivering four (4) COVID-19 emergency loan funds to support Aboriginal businesses in NADF’s catchment area that have been impacted by COVID-19.

NADF’s catchment area is Northern Ontario, which NADF defines as the territories of Treaty 9, the Ontario portions of Treaty 5 and Treaty 3, and Robinson-Superior 1850.

Out of the NADF catchment area? Contact an Aboriginal Financial Institution near you.

These funds are not intended to replace or duplicate government or other bank/lender emergency programs that are available to businesses in Canada.
