BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

A large number of refugees and immigrants come to Canada with hopes of starting their own business. However, business practices and regulations in North America differ from the rest of the world. Therefore, business development guidance is needed to realize the ideas and operations of the refugees and immigrants in Montreal. The Refugee Centre will be opening a business consulting wing to facilitate the development of these projects. We will be offering our interns from local business schools the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in consulting, thus concurrently aiding the refugee and immigrant population, and the student population as a whole. This would create opportunity for business and, arts and sciences students who wish to apply their skills. Both students and refugees can benefit through this collaboration.
