At this point in your development as an entrepreneur, you've determined you have the right stuff to be a business owner or partner. You've asked yourself the right questions and gotten the answers. You're ready to begin. Now what?

Our Starting a Business section will give you the tools and resources to forge ahead.  At this stage of the game, you need to know about business structure and registration, how to register your business name, what regulations apply to you, what taxes you'll have to pay and of course, how the Business Resource Centre can help you get moving.

To that end, we have compiled information in response to questions asked by the budding entrepreneurs.
