At the end of the program, participants are expected to be operating their business on a full-time basis.

Starting this month, the Alberta government is partnering with Anderson Career Training Institute and Microbusiness Training Centre to expand capacity in the Edmonton-area to support more Albertans.

Similar programs are also available in Calgary, Lethbridge and other parts of the province.

Approximately $1.9 million is allocated to Self-Employment training for 2016-17 in partnership with the Government of Canada.

The Self-Employment training program is one of several programs under the Alberta government’s Training for Work initiative. ■
