Oct. 2020 - First Nations Revenue Research Report
The FMB embarked upon the revenue source research in order to quantify the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic was having on Indigenous economies. It is estimated that First Nations’ business revenue decreased by $142.3 million in the second quarter of the 2020 calendar year and a total decrease of $1.9 billion is forecast for the 2021 fiscal year . The absence of readily available trusted data of the kind contained in this report points to the need for the re-establishment of a First Nations Statistical Institute.

Phase 1 will look at how First Nations can best use the UNDRIP to manage their own communities and work with Canada.
