'Indigenous Business Standard" means terms and conditions that indicate
that Indigenous business participation is desirable but not mandatory.

"Indigenous Person" means a First Nations, Non-status Indian, Métis or

INDIGENOUS PROCUREMENT INITIATIVE:
Manitoba is committed to community economic development as a key

INDIGENOUS BUSINESS STANDARD:

businesses for potential partnering or sub-contracting purposes.
Indigenous businesses not listed in the Directory may also be used.

Registration in the Indigenous Business Directory does not guarantee
certification as an Indigenous business, as business status may change;
therefore formal certification is required in the formal tender process.
