About the Survey 

In the spring of 2020, CCAB, in collaboration with the COVID-19 Indigenous Business Response Taskforce, undertook a preliminary survey to understand the impacts of the pandemic on Indigenous Businesses across Canada. The initial COVID-19 Indigenous Business Survey results have been used to inform CCAB programs and Government response plans to ensure relevant timely support for Indigenous businesses. Updated information is needed to understand ongoing vulnerabilities as well as the early stages of recovery.

It has now been over six months since the first COVID-19 Indigenous Business Survey, and the pandemic continues to disproportionately impact Indigenous businesses and communities across Canada. CCAB is undertaking this follow-up research to understand current impacts of the pandemic, impact of government supports, as well as crucial business needs.

This survey is open to Indigenous businesses that previously participated in the COVID-19 Indigenous Business Survey and those who did not. If you completed the initial survey, we thank you for your contribution to this important project but kindly ask that you re-enter your owner and business details.

It is equally important that we hear from Indigenous business owners who have closed their business since the onset of the pandemic, either temporarily or permanently. Your experiences can help inform policy to support businesses at risk of permanent closure.

CCAB gives thanks for the cooperation of National Indigenous Organizations that provided crucial guidance and input on the survey design, including:

- National Aboriginal Capital Corporations Association (NACCA)

- National Indigenous Economic Development Board (NIEDB)

This survey is 40 questions in length and will require approximately 15 to 20 minutes of your time to complete. Most questions are optional, allowing respondents to skip questions they do not wish to answer. Your participation will be anonymous, and your organization will not be identified. Data will be anonymized and stored on CCAB's secure research server, and all information will be reported in aggregate. By proceeding to the first question, you agree to participate in the following survey. Please note that you may lose your survey data if you click "back" in your browser.
