Listen On

In the past 20 years, the Black Community in Canada has doubled in size  – and as our community continues to grow, so does our contribution to the Canadian economy. We recently had the chance to with Andrea Barret, President of the Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce.

Andrea has been with the Chamber since its inception and is responsible for leading a team that contributes to creating and supporting Black-owned businesses across the country.

In this podcast, we are discussing how Andria perceived the changes that happened since the pandemic arrived, the initiatives that the Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce has put in place to help small businesses during these challenging times, and also her suggestions on how black business leaders and aspiring black entrepreneurs can bounce back from uncertainty and start businesses under challenging circumstances.
