Youth Entrepreneurship Program

It was a great feeling coming to the workshops each day to learn principles that could be implemented into my own business to enhance productivity. The business plan really opened up my insight into a lot of factors within my industry and business such as competitors, suppliers, and my target market.

I am so grateful I had the opportunity to be part of a great program catered to women. I enjoyed the supportive environment which helped me to grow and learn and gain hands-on experience in a business setting. In addition, Simpact successfully prepared me and supported me in finding employment including being a great reference for me.

Bridge to HR Online

Your online classes were not only full of knowledge but were also full of life. Your way of delivering the information was very enthusiastic, engaging, and motivating. When I shared with you that I have a good opportunity with Amazon, you walked with me… in order to improve my performance and this definitely contributed to my success in getting the job.

This program is phenomenal! It has been such a welcoming place and the support from staff and other participants has been amazing. The whole work environment has been created as a safe place to be yourself and contribute your skillset at your comfort level… I had figuratively lost my voice, this program helped me find my voice.

Self-employment Pathways for Newcomers

Having just gotten to Canada about 2 weeks ago this was the most valuable experience I have had. I have run my own business in the past and appreciate that execution and time management is one of the most important things I can focus on. I got so much value from the slides and the conversation today because this was insight that would have taken me months to gather.
