Connecting with free resources in your community

Canada has a wealth of free in-person support resources waiting to assist aspiring entrepreneurs. You can find traditional “bricks and mortar” government funded offices in all major cities and most rural centres across Canada. They all go by different names (Small Business Development Centre, Community Futures, KEDCO) making them sometimes difficult to find. Whatever the name, they all are staffed by experts ready to assist or point you in the right direction. Contact one of them and start building your support network today!
