Opening a business

Hi there,

I’m currently on CPP disability. I have been racking my brain as to what I want to do. You see we purchase an old school in Miami, MB. I would like to eventually get off C.C.P.D. it, but I need some to help me and I can, as I have no start up money. Any Suggestion would help!

Maybe there is some federal or provincial grant to help open a small business.

Ok thank you… I guess I will have to do more research!

You would need to report your intention to do this. Once you decide to start. And you should make sure that you are enrolled in CPP Disability’s “Vocational Rehabilitation Program”. Never attempt a business or return to work without being enrolled in the vocational rehabilitation program with CPPD / Service Canada.
