If you live in the York Region are receiving Employment Insurance or have received Employment Insurance in the past three years (or five years, if you have been on maternity/paternity leave), the Markham 14th Avenue YMCA Centre (formerly YMCA Markham Business Centre) offers a program that may interest you, the Ontario Self Employment Benefit Program.
If you are receiving Social Assistance, check out the Self Employment Development Program.
If you’d like to start your own business, but aren’t eligible for YMCA programs, we can also refer you to a number of agencies that can help you at no initial cost
