Kainai Nation Arts & Crafts Tourism Business Plannin

Date: 2009-2010

EcoPlan helped create a business plan to establish an Aboriginal arts & crafts enterprise that links one of Canada’s largest aboriginal communities to the region’s growing tourism sector, specifically within Waterton Lakes National Park. This project began by building a unique brand for the community and its artisans and included a marketing strategy to expand its reach beyond the local tourism base. A cooperative was explored to assist the artists in developing products and reaching markets previously inaccessible to them.
