MP Nathan Cullen has announced there are ten financial awards available to youth entrepreneurs in the north, including here on the islands.
The $1000 prizes are available to small business owners aged 29 and under, based on the criteria of innovation, ethical business practices, and long-term financial viability.
Applicants must also have initial funding in place, and have demonstrated tangible results for at least six months. The islands’ winner will be announced in next June.
Northern Savings Credit Union and Haida Gwaii Community Futures are among the list of sponsors for the program, and you can pick up an application package at the credit union or community futures office, or online at www.nathancullen.ca.
