I want to start my own business. How can you help?
Self employment services may be available for:
EI Eligible Clients – those who have an active claim or had an EI benefit period that ended within the last 60 months. (Some provinces have their own Maternity/Parental benefit plans. These may also qualify. See your Case Manager for more details.)
BCEA clients with PWD or PPMB status
Clients with disabilities
We provide eligible individuals with self-employment services when they cannot find work with their current skills. This is demonstrated through a documented job search. Acceptance into the program is subject to assessment of your suitability for self employment and the viability of your business concept.
