ISANS expands business counselling

The Chronicle Herald, October 12, 2017. The Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia will be able to hire two additional counsellors to work with existing immigrant entrepreneurs and startup companies with an additional $325,000 in funding from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency’s business development program.

The funds will enable the immigrant services association to develop online workshops and an online digital marketplace application, aid in setting up training sessions and connect clients to relevant resources, according to an ACOA news release issued Thursday.

Beefing up how the association assists immigrant entrepreneurs is an attempt to meet the increasing demand by new immigrant investors seeking business support services, states the federal agency in its news release.
