This summer, Atelier de Clare launched a pilot project, the Business Incubator, to provide support and basic resources to participants who want to start their own businesses.
The year-long pilot project now has its first enterprise, Fancy Nancy's Cleaning, owned and operated by Nancy Hodge. Business counselling is being provided by the Conseil de développement économique de la Nouvelle-Écosse and the Community Business Development Corporation.
If the project is successful, the Business Incubator will become open to taking on new entrepreneurs.
Fancy Nancy's Cleaning
Nancy Hodge is a skilled cleaner who has turned her talent into a business of her own.
Fancy Nancy's Cleaning provides residential and commercial cleaning services across the Clare region. She started the business as a way to gain financial independence, management skills and hopefully generate enough income to be able to live on her own. Nancy hires participants from Atelier in order to provide them with supportive employment at a fair wage.
To contact Fancy Nancy's Cleaning, please call Atelier at 902-769-3253, or check out her page on Facebook.
