Other Business Resources
There are many resources available to someone starting a business. Whether you want to begin a small mail-order business out of your home or start a multinational corporation, there's plenty of free information at your fingertips.
The internet is an invaluable resource to anyone in business. You can find out about consumer trends and get up-to-date market analyses, which will be able to help you plan your business and assess your market; learn how to obtain funding for your project from the government or private resources; learn about and obtain many of the legal registrations and applications you may need; and save time by filing many forms online.
One thing to be careful of when researching online is that you focus your search on the right region and get the information that's relevant to you. The internet is world wide so what applies in one province or country may not apply in another.
Government agencies have information packages available to help you as well. Contact them and they can mail you what you require. Our business account managers can also assist you with various aspects of your new endeavour. Come and talk to us before you begin.
There is a lot of material out there to help you start your business. Use it. Your competition will.
