Canada Business – Community Futures Focus Group

Canada Business – Community Futures is looking for youths between the ages of 14 to 24 for a Focus Group. This can also include those who work with this age group or a parent of a youth.

The purpose of the Focus Group is to identify key factors towards developing a toolkit for individuals with disabilities who are considering entrepreneurship as a career opportunity.

The results will help to determine how to adapt existing kits and/or create a new one.

The Focus Group will be held on November 3 at 9 AM until 11 AM (and possibly 1-3 PM). The location will be the Community Futures Videoconferencing centre in Vancouver.

Food and refreshments will be served.

If you are interested in attending, please contact John Markin at 604.306.4994 or jmarkin(at)mac.com.
