Administered by Acadia Entrepreneurship Center in our community, the Self Employment Benefits Program is a program of Employment NS.
WHAT IS IT?
Self-Employment Benefit (SEB) provides business training and financial assistance to approved clients who wish to start their own business.
Financial help is intended to cover personal living expenses during the start-up stage of your business. It is not an investment in the business.
