Client: MNBC Economic Development Portal
Description: Métis Nation British Columbia develops and enhances opportunities for Métis Chartered Communities and Métis people in British Columbia by providing culturally relevant social and economic programs and services.
Animikii created the Economic Development portal on the MNBC Website; the objective of the portal is to make it easier for Métis businesspeople and entrepreneurs to connect with each other and to access resources. In order to accomplish this, within the Economic Development portal, approved Métis businesses are provided a page on which to share their contact information, a summary of their company and a link to the company website. The Métis Business Directory also has a private function that only approved Métis businesses can access; through this new tool, business owners can search through any active requests for proposal (RFPs) listed on the application. More than anything else, the Métis Business Directory allows Métis entrepreneurs to network and do business with one another. The portal also houses links to government resources, industry engagement tools and guides that can support Métis entrepreneurs as they build their businesses. Animikii built the portal for MNBC’s exact needs; the portal is easy to understand and straightforward for users.
