Été-Biz (Summer-Biz)

By mmuise

The ÉTÉ-BIZ project was designed to allow young people between the ages of 14 and 25 to start a business during the summer to earn money for the following reasons: 1. return to secondary school;
2. pay for college or university fees to pursue post-secondary education; and
3. to pursue their business projects in order to make them permanent businesses.

Comments on Funding:

The CÉCS offers to fund up to $1,000 in scholarships per project to young people who wish to start a business during the 2022-2024 summer seasons.
These amounts will be invested in the form of a matching investment, i.e., the CÉCS will match the amount that the entrepreneur invests in his or her business project - up to $1,000 per project. For example, if a youth decides to buy a $1,000 lawnmower and has only $500 to invest, the CÉCS will match the $500 student bursary down payment to finalize the purchase of the product.
