Welcome to the Halton Region Small Business Centre blog!
Are you thinking about starting a business? Are you expanding your existing business? Looking for small business advice and resources to assist you? Halton’s Small Business Centre has the tools and services you’re looking for. We are here to help.
Our blog will include weekly posts featuring small business news, tips, expert advice, information about our Centre’s services and resources, and much more. We encourage you to follow us every Monday for new postings and information.
In addition to our blog, you can follow the Halton Small Business Centre on Facebook and Twitter. We are using these new communication tools to improve our connections to you, our small business community.
Halton’s Small Business Centre is one component of the Economic Development Division. We offer one-window access to government programs and services, information on Halton’s business environment and services to help you establish, expand or consolidate a business within Halton’s borders.
Ours is a diverse business community, with more than 37,000 businesses operating here. Ninety per cent of private sector businesses in Halton Region have less than 10 employees – meaning that entrepreneurs are the heart of Halton’s economy.
One of the goals of Halton’s Small Business Centre is to empower small businesses and give them the tools to achieve success. By supporting entrepreneurship, we are supporting the potential of increased employment opportunities in communities across Halton.
We’d love to know what you think and how you are using social media in your own businesses.
Please join the conversation – we’re looking for your comments, questions and feedback!
