Join Our Free Starting a Business Info Session

Learn how to start a business in BC

If you think you are ready to start a business, we encourage you to participate in one of our FREE phone-in Starting Your Business Information Sessions.

The session is broken into 2 parts. In Part 1, we explain how to write an effective business plan. We cover each section of the business plan and provide strategies and resources to ensure your plan is well organized and consistent. In Part 2 we uncover how to make your business official.

You will learn about:

  • the different types of business structures
  • naming and registering your business
  • where to find information about taxes, licenses and permits
  • social media and websites
  • sources of funding for your business

To prepare for the workshop and to make the most out of the hour, we suggest you:

These FREE phone-in sessions are held every second Wednesday at noon (Pacific Time).
