May 21, 2019 – WorkSafeBC is partnering with Small Business BC to deliver an entire month of free business education this June.

All of Small Business BC’s educational seminars, webinars, and Talk to an Expert services will be available completely free of charge from June 1, 2019 through June 30, 2019. Registration is open to all who are starting, growing, buying, or exiting a business in B.C.

There will be over 30 seminars offered for free, covering a variety of topics including human resources, sales strategies, publicity and marketing, working with the government, business planning, financing information, step-by-step instructions for starting a business, and more.

All seminars are delivered in-person at Small Business BC’s office in Waterfront Station in Downtown Vancouver, but most are also remotely accessible via webinar, making it easy for registrants from across the province to benefit.

Those who register for Small Business BC’s Talk to an Expert services during the month of June will receive a free 30 minute one-on-one consultation with a leading expert in the fields of branding, accounting, law, website building, business brokerage, shipping, insurance, and operations. During these consultations, registrants can ask questions and seek advice that is specific to their own business.

“We are very proud to partner with WorkSafeBC to deliver this month of free education,” said Small Business BC CEO Tom Conway. “The development and growth of small businesses is vital to the B.C. economy and we’re thrilled to be able to provide entrepreneurs with access to the leading resources and tools they need to thrive.”

Registration for seminars, webinars, and Talk to an Expert services are now open through Small Business BC’s website.
