Helping our young people and newcomers see entrepreneurship as a career option opens up a world of possibility here at home.

Youth retention

Our Emerging Entrepreneurs Program has been inspiring young people since 2002.  Our youth coordinator works with high school teachers and students across the region to create entrepreneurial programming that focused on problem solving and innovation, as well as highlighting the possibilities associated with starting and running a business. A high school accelerator was recently created in partnership with the Anglophone South School Division. The Centre for Entrepreneurship has students taking an intense, accelerated program to develop, market and create a business service or product.
