TRICORP’s service area extends (east to west) from Haida Gwaii to Burns Lake, Hartley Bay to the south, and North to the Yukon border. Our service area comprises approximately 21 villages covering a broad geographic territory. Following the specific guidelines of our funding partners, TRICORP strives to provide regional coverage offering a wide range of programs and services to your communities.

TRICORP’s Northwest Indigenous Advancement of Cultural Entrepreneurship Program (NW-IACE) offered in partnership with the University of Victoria’s Peter B. Gustavson School of Business, has been delivered in various communities throughout the region for approximately eight years. In the years prior to Covid 19, the NW-IACE program was delivered in Prince Rupert, Terrace, Hazelton, Dease Lake & Bella Bella (Affiliated programs were also offered in Nisga’a Communities on Haida Gwaii). During the past two years, TRICORP has also successfully conducted three online sessions of the NW-IACE program.

Since its inception, the ACE program reports 682 successful graduates and 219 businesses launched. Based on the success of your community members, in addition to frequent requests from community leaders for broader eligibility to the NW-IACE program for members living outside of the TRICORP service area, we are pleased to announce a unique offering ofTRICORP’s international awarding-winning entrepreneurship program.

On this one special occasion, TRICORP is extending the eligibility of the NW-IACE Program to include your members who are currently residing outside TRICORP’s service area. For example, suppose your Nation has registered community members currently residing in Prince George, Vancouver, or other locations within British Columbia. In that case, they are eligible to apply for this one-time unique offering of the Northwest Indigenous Advancement of Cultural Entrepreneurship Program.
