A Message from the Honourable Lynn Yelich, Former Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification

The Entrepreneurs with Disabilities Program website is an important tool to increase access to services being offered through participating Community Futures Development Corporations across British Columbia. Providing services to entrepreneurs with specialized needs or obstacles is crucial to building a dynamic business environment in British Columbia and across the West. Improving Canada’s competitive position means developing the best educated, most skilled and most flexible workforce in the world.

Western Economic Diversification Canada is dedicated to ensuring all western Canadians have the means to achieve a higher standard of living and a better quality of life. This includes making it easier for entrepreneurs with disabilities to pursue their business goals and contribute to the economic growth of their communities.


Our Government is breaking down barriers that prevent Canadians from reaching their potential. This website is just one example that will contribute to the continued success of entrepreneurs and I look forward to learning about the results of this important work.”
