Entrepreneurship Program for Newcomers
Effective September 8, 2021, Indus requires proof of vaccination via paper or PDF vaccine receipt or an enhanced digital vaccine receipt that features a QR code (upon implementation by the Province of Ontario) and another piece of photo identification, such as a driver’s licence or health card in order to access in-person services. Clients who are unable to provide proof of vaccination will only be provided phone or virtual services by appointment only.
Indus is excited to introduce our new entrepreneurship and income generation program for newcomers in the field of sewing and alterations.
This is a unique training program tailored specifically to meet the needs of newcomers who have some basic sewing skills or interest in sewing and alterations. The program aims to spark the entrepreneurial spirit by providing the skills, knowledge and language to start their own sewing and alterations business. Participants will be able to gain skills around sewing and develop a firm understanding of business knowledge in a Canadian context.
The program also provides an opportunity to gain hands-on Canadian work experience through a variety of ways. The goal of this program is to introduce newcomers to entrepreneurship with the ability to become self-employed and financially independent.
