Are you a student with a creative business idea? Applications are now accepted for the young entrepreneur program – Summer Company. The program provides funding, training and mentoring to assist high school and post-secondary students in starting a seasonal business.  
The program is open to youth ages 15 – 29 who are returning to school in the fall. Approved participants are provided a grant of up to $3,000 to start and operate a summer business. The application deadline is May 23, 2022 and there is limited space in the program. Interested youth are invited to register for a virtual information session taking place on March 30, 2022 from 4 – 4:30pm. Full program eligibility and guidelines can be found on the Government of Ontario’s website.   
Over the last 5 years, 60 businesses in the Algoma region were started through Summer Company. Funded by the Province of Ontario, the program is administered by the Economic Development division of the City of Sault Ste. Marie.
