Supporting the Self-Employed

Self-employment is a growing trend in Canada, so career practitioners need to understand what's involved if their clients choose it as a career option. The resources in this section are intended to:

 - Provide background for you on topics relevant to self-employment
 - Give you practical tips and strategies for helping your clients critically examine the possibility of becoming self-employed.

Are you thinking about becoming self-employed yourself or do you want some relevant resources for your clients? Also check out the resources in the Exploring Self-Employment section.

Also, be sure to check out the links under the Exploring Self-Employment tab (if you're considering self-employment) or the Supporting Self-Employment tab (if you're a helping professional).
