Self-employment HUB

Self-employment takes many forms: it can be a home-based micro-enterprise, or a consultancy service, or a larger enterprise, which may offer employment to others.

Whatever form your business takes, self-employment provides flexible hours, personalized work environments and economic inclusion for individuals who have a viable business idea and are ready, willing and motivated to run their own business.  

KEYS offers many services designed to make it easier for entrepreneurs to pursue their business goals by providing access to resources and coaching.  KEYS Employment Resource Centre is also an active Self-employment Resource HUB with access to a variety of business planning tools, templates and on-line resources.  We can offer a small batch printing service for business cards and flyers.

Resource Centre staff can refer you to other programs and services within KEYS and in the community to support your ideas and to grow your business.
