Trade & Industry

The IFA Trade Program promotes international trade between Canadian and global Indigenous designers, enhancing visibility and inclusion of Indigenous knowledge and cultural expressions in fashion, craft, and textiles. It supports Indigenous artist entrepreneurs by providing resources to increase revenue, market growth, product longevity, and access to export financing and global supply chains. Observing nation-to-nation protocols, the program fosters inter-tribal trade alliances, peace, and resource sharing, collaborating with partners and stakeholders for a balanced and mutually beneficial experience.
