The Orangeville & Area Small Business Enterprise Centre (SBEC) in partnership with the Province of Ontario, is once again delivering the popular Summer Company program. Summer Company provides local youth with funding and guidance as they start up and run their own businesses during the summer months. This summer, four enterprising students will be operating businesses in Dufferin and area. The summer companies represent a wide range of sectors including agriculture, retail, technology and service. Summer Company 2020 participants include:

Do you have a treasured but tattered family heirloom that you just can’t part with? Let Upcycle by Design transform that article into a showpiece you’ll be proud to display. Design student Shadi Mojallali brings new life to worn furniture, overused articles, outdated clothing, and wooden pallets, creating attractive and functional décor, collectables and wearables. Shadi’s chic and unique creations are artfully designed or repurposed in her home-based studio where she also creates an inventory of her own products for sale. Using secondhand materials, Shadi creates one of a kind décor that could be exactly what your space needs.
