Self-Employment Services in Niagara

The Start Me Up Niagara Work Action Centre's employment team offers services to help participants find self-employment options, including supports and tools to start and grow a business.

Supports for Self-Employment

The Work Action Centre is the largest self-employment service provider for people with disabilities in the Niagara region.

Many of our participants find self-employment a more flexible option than traditional work, and we support them with information, resources, and tools to start and grow a business.
