The Self-Employment program is designed to help you succeed as an entrepreneur.

How does the Self-Employment Program work?

Your business idea must be considered viable in order for this activity to be approved as part of your participation plan. You will have to create a business plan and attend a viability assessment with the Business Centre.

The Ontario Works Program works closely with the Business Centre in order to provide you with information, programs, training, and resources for business start-ups or expansions. This program will provide you with ongoing support for up to 60 weeks.

For more information on the Self-Employment program, please contact your Case Manager.
