Newcomer Entrepreneur Day highlighting Newcomer Businesses and the economic benefits that newcomers bring to Canada, will be happening on May 1, as part of the 2020 Niagara Folk Arts Festival. This is exciting news for those seriously thinking of making a push to create and own a business.

A success story in their own, a former client of the Folk Arts Multicultural Centre, who is now a business owner, is looking to make a donation ($) to a newcomer entrepreneur, which this event will be the culmination of some weeks of preparation and competition.

This is open to any newcomer entrepreneur who has been in Canada for less than 10 years and who has had a business for less than 3 years or someone who is seriously thinking of registering their own business in the next 3 months. To comply with the intention of the donor, immigration status is not part of the eligibility criteria for the prize. We will be having two information sessions: Thursday, Feb. 6 from 2pm-3pm and Tuesday, Feb. 18 from 10am to 11pm. Please see the contact information provided in the poster.”
