The BBI is committed to growing a stronger Black presence in Nova Scotia’s business community; acting as a catalyst for job creation, equitable participation and advancing the economic prosperity of Nova Scotia. In 1996, the Government of Canada and the Province of Nova Scotia set up the BBI to address the unique needs confronting the Black business community in Nova Scotia.
For the first five years of its existence, BBI was funded under the COOPERATION Agreement for Economic Diversification, a joint agreement between the federal and provincial governments. The BBI and its broad scope of economic development activities is currently funded by the federally administered Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), Nova Scotia Business Inc project funding, corporate donations, fund-raising and commercial activities initiated across BBI’s composite group of companies.
