The Self-Employment Benefit (SEB) Program often provides a much needed catalyst for new entrepreneurs, helping them to realize their goal of becoming a business owner by providing them with financial and coaching support during the planning and start-up phases of their business. Self-Employment Benefit (SEB) is a program which provides various types of support to eligible applicants during the initial phase of their business, including financial assistance, counselling and technical advice.
Comments on Funding:
Applicants will continue to receive the Employment Insurance (EI) benefits until their claim ends. At this time, they will receive support at a provincially established rate for the duration of time remaining on the SEB Program. OR, if they are approved for the SEB Program, but are not currently receiving Employment Insurance benefits, they will receive a weekly allowance at a provincially established rate.
When It Ends:
Applicants must meet with the SEB Coordinator to conduct an analysis of the applicant’s strengths and needs, in order to determine if self-employment is a viable choice for him/her.
Applicants must meet with the Liaison Officer of the SEB PWD Program to confirm the applicant’s disability and determine his/her eligibility for the SEB PWD component;
Applicants must complete and submit the application form.
Applicants must submit:
- 1a completed application form;
- 2a Business Plan.
Other Things to Note:
SEB is funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of New Brunswick through the Canada-New Brunswick Labor Market Agreements.
