Eastside Movement for Business and Economic Renewal Society

EMBERS (Eastside Movement for Business & Economic Renewal Society) is a non-profit agency that works to combat poverty and assists in the revitalization of Vancouver’s inner city by facilitating community-based business development. We do this by helping individuals and groups start small businesses and social enterprises. We offer self-employment training, one-on-one business coaching, and work with residents, community groups and other stakeholders to develop plans, strategies and specific ventures to improve the lives of residents and build a healthy community.
