Calling All Rural Business Owners and Entrepreneurs

October 24, 2022

Do you have an idea for a business in rural Newfoundland and Labrador? Already running a rural business? We would greatly value your knowledge and experience!
Empower is working to address challenges faced by business owners in rural areas of Newfoundland and Labrador. We would love to hear from entrepreneurs to better understand current challenges experienced when starting and operating a business in all areas of our beautiful province. We are especially interested in hearing from entrepreneurs from underserved or underrepresented communities. Additional support or accommodation to participate in this project is available if required.
If you would be open to sharing your experience with us, please contact Sherri Tucker at
This project is funded through a generous donation to Empower from the Northpine Foundation. The Northpine Foundation supports organizations that create sustainable and systemic change for underserved and underinvested groups for a healthy and resilient Canada. Empower provides supports, resources, and opportunity for persons with disabilities to make informed choices about their lives.
