How we can help your business.

Our business start-up advisory services include:

• Assistance ensuring your product or service will make sense to the consumer.
• Setting up a strong business plan to help you acquire any necessary funding (grants or loans).
• Research into your business idea to ensure it’s going to be a feasible way to make you money.

Remember, a strong business structure will define how your business taxes will be handled come year end.

Frequently asked questions.

Are there grants available to start my business?

Yes, there is money out there to help you succeed! Some of the grants available for you include:

Alberta Business Grants LTD
Business Link Canada
Apeetogosan (Metis) Development Inc. Pinnacle Business Services Ltd.
Where can I get a loan for my business?

We recommend speaking directly with your bank for financial support, but any financial institution will accept an application. An example where you can get a business loan is with Community Futures Development Corporation.

What do I need to do before hiring my first employee?

Before you hire an employee we recommend you ask yourself the following questions:

Is hiring a new employee truly necessary and do you have means to do so?
Do you have a clear job description?
How do I weed out the Good from the bad?
What qualities do you want in an employee?
How will you onboard a new employee?
What if I need space for my business?

How do I go about doing that? Commercial space is usually rented by square foot so you’ll first need to figure out the square footage that your business will need and carefully read your contract and make sure you understand your obligation. Once you know you’re approved for a rental space, make sure to check out the space’s security and the rest of the area that rental property is available in.
