ACSBE's Self-Employment Benefits Program (SEB) helps people fulfill their potential through self-employment. If you are interested in starting your own business, and are Employment Insurance (EI) eligible, the Self-Employment Benefits Program can provide you with income and support to make it happen.

During the 40 week program, you will be required to:
 • Complete a business plan including 3 year financial projections;
 • Attend a minimum of three workshops; 
 • Attend one-on-one advisory sessions with an ACSBE Business Counsellor;
 • Submit monthly timesheets outlining business activities;
 • Invest a minimum of 35 hours per week.

If accepted into the SEB program, you will have access to ongoing support from our Business Counsellors and to our business workshops. Following the completion of the program you will continue to receive support from our counsellors to help you further your success in business.
