Her Own Boss! Entrepreneurial Opportunities for Newcomer Visible Minority Women

This community-based action research project seeks to support visible minority newcomer women in establishing and succeeding in entrepreneurship activities, while identifying the challenges and opportunities they face while trying to start their own businesses. The benefits that this research is expected to bring to the Women’s Economic Council are to better understand visible minority newcomer women wishing to be self-employed; the local self-employment services, including any gaps and barriers for visible minority newcomer women in accessing these services as well as the challenges faced by service providers in reaching out to these women; and the impact of the training sessions on all participants in achieving their economic goals.
