Indigenous National Business Concept

A CERTIFIED member of Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business

" All humans are entrepreneurs not because they should start companies, but because the will to create is encoded in human DNA." Reid Hoffman , LinkedIn co-founder


OnNation is a 100% Indigenous owned Company that focuses on bringing its considerable experience as a contract service provider to both the public and private sector.

"The biggest and quite possibly also the largest barrier for Indigenous entrepreneurs when getting into business (other than deciding what business to be in), is access to capital, credit restrictions, personal credit constraints etc. The biggest obstacle we see most of the time from the business partners standpoint is "RISK" or ensuring payment. I have faced all of these issues over my business career and continue to at times depending on the size of the project involved. One thing that I can share with other aspiring and potential Indigenous business candidates is my own experiences and knowledge on how to overcome some of these hurdles.


Our goal is to be able to offer any Indigenous person who is interested in starting a business or self employment a "readymade" opportunity with NO FRANCHISE FEES, NO FINANCIAL COMMITMENTS, and NO ROYALTIES. With the exception of Desire to succeed, the established business model that we can offer will eliminate ALL of the inherent issues that are usually prevalent for anyone wanting to start a business, whether it be full time, or even part time".  - Barry Payne, Founder
