Cats always land on their feet, will you? Attend this session and find out:

  • what is needed to start a business,
  • if you’re a good fit for self‐employment,
  • how you can successfully plan out your idea,
  • where you can go for business advice and financing.

The impact of low oil prices has been felt by southeast Saskatchewan. Some residents may now be looking to small business as a way to replace or supplement household incomes. To address questions related to business start-up, a new workshop entitled ‘How to Start a Successful Business’ will be held on April 6, 2016 in Oxbow. Community Futures (CF) Sunrise and the Town of Oxbow are pleased to bring this informative evening session to the community.

Workshop facilitator Verna O’Neill of CF Sunrise will take participants through the steps involved with starting a business: what is needed, who to contact and where to start the planning process. “Starting and then managing a business can be very rewarding, but it takes a lot of hard work, planning and perseverance to be successful. I encourage anyone who is thinking about business ownership to come and find out about the resources available to help them,” says O’Neill.

“We’re very pleased to offer this workshop in Oxbow. Those who attend this evening workshop will take away some great information and contacts to use in their business development,” comments Tami Scott, Community Development Officer for the Town of Oxbow.

There is no fee to attend this evening session, but registration is required. For more information or to reserve your seat, contact Tami at 306.483.2747 or
