The purpose of the Mentorship, Business Incubator and Remote Access to Technology programs is to encourage and nurture the growth of new and existing businesses which will create and/or maintain permanent full-time and/or permanent part-time jobs in the PACE region and surrounding First Nations. This will be achieved by assisting entrepreneurs and existing small business enterprises to develop necessary business management skills through a variety of training opportunities, and subsidized shared resources. The Remote access to technology fund is intended to assist new and existing businesses to transition to remote work capability during the COVID-19 pandemic; and to scale up post pandemic to adapt to evolving marketplace practices that demand increased digital operation.
