In Quebec, aboriginal people constitute a particular minority. Being First Nations, Inuits or Metis, they are often marginalized from mainstream economic processes distant from their traditional culture and knowledge base. Nevertheless, one can observe a rising number of aboriginal entrepreneurs in Quebec. Hence a question arises: is entrepreneurship being used by the aboriginal people of Quebec to recreate economic processes closer to their traditional values and cultures? What is the contribution of traditional knowledge to aboriginal entrepreneurship? Does it constitute a genuine competitive advantage and serve as a development tool for the aboriginal communities or is viewed as a hindrance to becoming successful entrepreneurs?
