Huron County, Ontario – The County of Huron, in partnership with the Province of Ontario, recognizes the importance of inspiring and assisting young people to choose entrepreneurship as a career. For this reason, the County of Huron and the Province of Ontario have invested in providing training, mentorship and funds to local students and aspiring entrepreneurs through the Summer Company program.

“Investing in Huron County’s youth is invaluable,” said Huron County Warden Glen McNeil.  “These talented and adventurous young people are the leaders of tomorrow and I am thrilled that the County of Huron is able to support their entrepreneurial spirit in this way.  Congratulations to each of the Summer Company’s six recipients!”

The Summer Company program, administered by the County of Huron, aims to equip students with the tools they need to succeed, as they learn how to run a business, receive mentorship and training, and develop skills that are highly valued in all workplaces. Students between the ages of 15 and 29, who are returning to school in the fall, can apply to receive up to $3,000 in start-up funding and business coaching to run their own summer business.
