In 2020, Indsights: A Window into the Indigenous Economy began as a collaboration between the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB) and Humber College. The purpose is to highlight the contributions of Indigenous peoples to the economy through open educational resources in the form of case studies. Indigenous business owners are invited to participate in a qualitative interview to discuss their entrepreneurial journeys, which are then developed into multimedia case studies. Each entrepreneur plays an active role in the creation of their respective study and has the opportunity to provide feedback and input. Indsights aims to publish 15 case studies online, each including an interview video, written component, and teaching notes. In doing so, this initiative offers learners a wealth of accessible online resources filling a gap in available content on Indigenous entrepreneurs.
