Introduction

Want to open up a business but don’t know where to start?  Looking for some guidance on how to get things going?

In this post, we’re going to connect you with two great resources—one Canadian and one American—that will help guide you through the process of starting up a business.

Our Findings

Starting a Business in Canada

If you’re looking to open up a business in Canada, the best place to start is the Government of Canada’s “Canada Business Network” website, found here.

On the website, they have sections covering all phases of a business’ lifespan—from starting a business to managing and growing a business—for all provinces and territories in Canada.  All you have to do to is go to the section that best describes what phase you’re in, select the subject area that relates to your inquiry, and you should be able to find the information you’re looking for!

Starting a Business in the U.S.A.

If you’re starting a business in the United States, the best place to look for information on the subject is the U.S. Small Business Administration’s website, found here.

On this website, you’ll find information on starting and managing a business, getting loans and grants, and much more.  For information on a particular topic, browse the section that best describes what you’re looking for and you should be able to find everything you need!
