Date: 2008-03-03
Value: $63,475.00
Type: Grant
Purpose: In collaboration with key business and community partners, this 11 month mentorship project will target 200 low-income women residing in coastal communities along the Southern Gulf of St. Lawrence. Eight learning sessions will be delivered in both official languages to women in coastal regions demonstrating how they could start small businesses through marketable products or services, and help them to consider the sustainability of their communities in their business planning. The Coalition will provide ongoing support to at least 20 of these women with a mentorship program which could easily be adaptable in other coastal and rural regions across the country.
