CFWR on behalf of Employment Manitoba administers the Self-Employment program (SE) for the North Eastman region. The program provides an opportunity for unemployed individuals who are EI-eligible to start their own business, while collecting their employment insurance benefits. SE clients work with our Business Development Officer who assists them with a business plan, marketing, financial analysis, and counselling/monitoring for the full term they are on the program.
Over the past year, 471 services were provided to SE clients. In addition, SE clients took part in a Marketing Workshop, one-on-one bookkeeping sessions, computer accounting training, and entrepreneurial training session via video conferencing.
This year seventeen new clients were accepted into the program and ten successfully completed the program. During the 2007/08 Fiscal Year 21 jobs were created through new business enterprises. Since we began delivering the SE Program 424 people have participated.
