Self employment and entrepreneurship expo for people with disabilities

May 6 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

There’s still time to register for this event hosted by the Richmond Centre for Disability (RCD). See below.

RCD is supporting the worldwide Invisible Illness Awareness Day by offering “an exposition of self-employment and entrepreneur resources for people with invisible illness and people living with a disability”  on May 6.

Dave Thomson, Community Outreach Coordinator of the RCD, states that they are embarking on their sixth annual event to highlight the abilities of people with invisible illness and people living with a disability from different perspective. This year they are presenting an expo event focusing on self-employment and entrepreneurship, in alignment with the mission of the RCD in enhancing full participation of every citizen. The RCD has been in support of self-empowerment and finding unique solutions for the disability community of Richmond and beyond for over 32 years.

The driving force behind this event theme is that access to reliable unbiased information and trusted support is sometimes elusive; people living with a disability or invisible illness may need assistance in setting realistic goals and making informed decisions. The goal of the event is to bring entrepreneurs together with educational and financial resources and support, all in one convenient time and place.

Everyone is welcome to join the event — the RCD is a not-for-profit organization offering direct services to people with disabilities. If interested, call 604-247-8300 or visit rcdrichmond.org/NewsAndEvents/SEEE/SEEE_2017_Reg.php.
