1. What are some of the issues Canadian Aboriginals face in Canada? (Issues may be health, access, education, social class, violence, gender issues etc.)
2. Who are the stakeholders within this issue (people, communities, groups, and businesses and trades) involved?
3. Analyze your chosen start up, business, or project from a SWOT perspective (can be written in point form, chart format).
