About the event
The Side Hustle MicroGrant program is for those with an entrepreneurial spirit looking to put ideas into motion. Applicants can apply for up to $500 in non-repayable funds to start their side hustle and test their concept.
Funds can be used towards supplies, permits, equipment, and marketing as approved by the Program Coordinator. For pre-existing entrepreneurs, funds can be used towards creating a new service or product to expand a current business, though funds are not meant for direct sales, multi level marketing, or to go towards purchase price of an existing business. We have varying intakes (as advertised) focusing on youth, women, Indigenous people, people with disabilities, and newcomers to Canada. Applicants must also meet the following criteria:
- You are a resident of the Prince Albert & district region
- Applicants must have a business idea and fill out the basic application with acceptable detail
- Applicants must complete a skills assessment worksheet with the Program Coordinators
- Successful applicants must participate in 3 modules of online learning: Intro to Side Hustle to help create a basic business plan.
