Student Entrepreneurship


SEED – 16 years and up

The Student Entrepreneurship program enables students of ages 16 and over to become an entrepreneur by opening their own summer business.

Every year, students take on the challenge of opening a summer business with the help of the Restigouche Entrepreneurship Centre and the Student Entrepreneurship program (SEED).

This program allows students returning to studies in the fall to apply for a loan of up to $3000 in order to create their own summer business. The business must operate for a minimum of 6 weeks during the summer and must create at least one full time job (35 hours per week). If the student meets all the criteria, and reimburses their loan in its entirety by October 15th, they will receive 1/3 of the loan in return, up to a maximum of $1000!
