The Federal Government has announced it is pouring $168,000 into a business program for First Nations and Metis people.


The Aboriginal Business Service Network Initiative is designed to help aboriginal entrepreneurs find the training they need to succeed in today’s workplace.


Bill Hogan is the Manager of Visions North, the group that facilitates the program in Northern Saskatchewan.


He says the funding will enable them to get to reserves, that might normally slip through the cracks.


He says everything from how to run a business to grant applications and business plans are covered under the training.


The money is designed to last until March 31st, 2008.
