This paper is the result of an increasing concern that the growth in self-employment warrants the review of federal government policies and the development of a comprehensive national policy to address the needs of the growing number of self-employed Canadians
OSEDA was a consortium of nonprofits led by SEDI. With the support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, OSEDA launched the Self-Sufficiency Through Self-Employment project in 1999. The consortium's mission was to provide self-employment services over a five-year period (1999-2004) to low-income people across Ontario. This is a report on the five-year project.
This report presents preliminary observations from the learn$ave pilot program. It is the first published report about the pilot, which had 4,827 people enrolled at 10 sites across Canada.
SEDI prepared this submission to the Department of Finance Canada in response to the Department's invitation to take part in informal consultations on the tax treatment of savings.
