OMX recently signed an agreement with the Canadian Council of Aboriginal Businesses.
Our goal is to drive more business to Aboriginal owned businesses in Canada by sending out opportunities for Aboriginal owned businesses to respond to, and to work with large Corporations to manage, track and report on impacts to Aboriginal owned businesses.
