Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities
If you are a person with a disability who wants to start a business, or an employer who would like to hire someone with a disability, you could qualify for funds.
Self-employment: You could receive financial assistance for training that can help you start a business if you:
- Have a permanent physical or mental disability
- Are not eligible for employment insurance benefits
Employers: You could get a wage subsidy to hire someone with a disability. The funding can cover a portion of the salary. Projects must normally involve a minimum of 8 participants.
Other conditions apply.
