Maple Ridge man wins Young Entrepreneur of the Year at Indigenous Business Awards

September 17, 2023

The 15th annual Indigenous Business Awards winners were recently announced, with one Maple Ridge man being named the Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

Dwight Ballantyne is the founder of The Ballantyne Project, which is a youth-led initiative that aims to bring awareness to Indigenous groups that are often overlooked by society.

Although he is originally from Montreal Lake Cree Nation, Ballantyne relocated to Maple Ridge several years ago and has been working steadily since then to create local projects that help support First Nations communities.
