Business advisory services for Ontario small and medium-sized businesses

To help businesses grow, our Senior Business Advisors work with established firms to better understand business needs and growth opportunities to build the capacity of small and medium-sized businesses to scale and grow. Our advisors provide tailored options, advice, analysis and practical recommendations for the unique business challenges faced by:

  • producers of tradable goods and services across all sectors

We support small and medium-sized businesses with:

  • assessing organizational strengths and identifying potential opportunities for improvement
  • doing business with government
  • understanding and navigating government regulations and compliance challenges
  • making connections to other provincial ministries, and other levels of government
  • networking with other businesses
  • making connections with local partners (e.g. to help find skilled staff)
  • facilitating discussions and referrals to support business capacity building, such as technology adoption and export readiness programs
