Self-Employment Services

Self-Employment Orientation and Assessment Services

Self-Employment (SE) orientation and assessment services are provided to clients who are unable to obtain sustainable employment in the local labour market and who have been assessed as eligible for, needing and potentially suitable for SE services through a formal needs assessment.

This service is designed to provide information on SE Services, create awareness about entrepreneurship, and confirm client suitability and self-employment readiness as well as business concept eligibility for Program support.

SE orientation and assessment services must be completed before a client is approved to participate in the program’s SE services.

For clients with disabilities, participation requirements can be more flexible to accommodate disability-related needs.

Self-Employment Objectives

The objective of Self-Employment (SE) Services is to help eligible case-managed clients, who have successfully completed Self-Employment orientation and assessment services and had their business concept accepted, to create jobs for themselves by starting a business. Clients who participate in SE services are expected to become self-sufficient and independent through self-employment upon completion.

For clients with disabilities, participation requirements can be more flexible to accommodate disability-related needs.

There are three distinct components of Self-Employment services available through the program:

Business Plan Development
Entrepreneurial Workshops
Business Launch and Implementation
Coaching and mentoring by service providers with specialized expertise in self-employment business knowledge is provided throughout Self-Employment services.
