Why Economic Inclusion?

We here at Dream Legacy Foundation are committed to finding  solutions to remove those barriers and we seek to endure economic opportunities for all. With the programs we offer, we are sure to help any and all  black entrepreneurs who want to make it ahead within the  financial world.

Facts on Economic Inclusion

  • Economic exclusion is when individuals cannot access economic resources and opportunities such as participation in paid work, procurement competitions,  and financial capital. All of these forms of exclusion are common to Black Indigenous, people of color, recent  immigrants, women, and people with disabilities living in Canada.

  • In Canada, the federal government alone spends $18-20 billion per year procuring goods and services. Over the next ten years, the Canadian federal government will spend $180 billion on infrastructure investments. Learn more here

Current Programs

Every business transaction has an economic, environmental, and social impact on our communities. In collaboration with our partners, we are gathering data to understand the barriers to economic inclusion and its impact on the most vulnerable groups.

The Black Innovation Connections program is a 3-month, track-based coaching program that puts high-potential Black founders on the fast track to success and prepares them for the DMZ Incubator. Much like the Incubator, this program is customized to meet each founder’s unique needs. Connections also provides founders with an added layer of support to address the additional business barriers that Black-owned companies often face.
