There are many great ideas, but do you have a great business idea? This session will introduce you to a tool to help you determine if your business idea is feasible and a right decision for you. Once you understand that your idea is feasible then you need to understand the basic rules and regulations you will be required to follow. We will discuss the basic information needed from the municipality (business licensing), the province (business structures) and the federal government (HST and Business Numbers). Many resources will also be provided. The session will conclude with a 30 to 45-minute question and answer period. NOTE: This session is a combination of our regular Validating Your Business Idea, Starting Your Business Information Session and our Entrepreneur Q&A.
