Every year since 1979, the third week of October is designated as Small Business Week across Canada to celebrate entrepreneurs and bring them together to network. The goal is to provide them with opportunities to learn, network, share ideas and socialize with like-minded entrepreneurs.
Every good business owner knows that to succeed, they need to be focused on building and sustaining their enterprise 52 weeks per year. The same rule applies when it comes to building health and safety into their enterprises: it’s a day-to-day, week-to week priority that is proven to help their bottom line while fulfilling their legal responsibilities as employers.

Below are just some of the free resources available to you.
