Ryerson’s new Indigenous Fashion Support (IFS) Program is working to help Indigenous entrepreneurs gain business experience in the fashion industry.

Since Oct. 15 participants have taken part in a virtual incubation “to sharpen their entrepreneurial skills while developing real-life solutions,” according to Ryerson’s Fashion Zone (RFZ) website. The program was recently launched by RFZ and will run for 12 weeks in total.
