New Funding will Support Newcomer Women Entrepreneur Training Program

Today, the Government of Canada and the Government of Saskatchewan announced $255,000 in combined funding for the Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan Inc. (WESK) to support women entrepreneurs in Saskatchewan.

The province will invest $128,000, with federal funding through the National Action Plan to End Gender Based Violence providing $127,000. Funding will support WESK’s Newcomer Training Support program, which targets up to 25 eligible newcomer women with an existing business, or newcomer women interested in entrepreneurship, to start, grow and expand their businesses.

In the recently released Building the Workforce for a Growing Economy: the Saskatchewan Labour Market Strategy, the province is prioritizing supporting under-represented groups connect to jobs in Saskatchewan. Targeted investments into teaching women entrepreneurial skills and to successfully operate a small business in the province help Saskatchewan people to prepare for jobs and build economic growth. This investment also promotes the retention of newcomers and ensures they are welcomed into Saskatchewan while being supported for long-term success.
