Business Training and Support Services

EMBERS Ventures

As we move forward, we will no longer be offering the Build a Business, Grow a Business, and Self-Employment Programs. Instead, throughout the next year, we’ll be exploring opportunities for new partnerships to maximize our impact in self-employment mentorship and capacity building. With the skills and expertise we’ve built over the years, we’re confident this direction will make the biggest difference for our community.

Of course, if you have questions about entrepreneurship in general, we’re still happy to direct you to the right resources. Feel free to email Johanna at

For more information on the WorkBC Self Employment Program, please contact your nearest WorkBC Office.
