Self Employment Services are designed to assist aspiring entrepreneurs with the information, skill development, resources, and coaching support they need to develop a business concept, prepare a business plan and launch the first year of business, while receiving EI or Living Assistance.
The Self Employment program is available to participants by a referral process from WorkBC Employment Services Centres. A Case Manager at Work BC Employment Services Centres evaluates participant eligibility based on criteria and administers financial benefits.
