BC: A new video conferencing services will bring small businesses closer together and help them with training and the development of new programs.
Launched by the Ministry of Small Business and Revenue along with the Ministry of Agriculture and Lands, the program will allow small businesses to have access to seminars and workshops from the comfort of their own backyard.
"With this added resource located at FrontCounter BC locations, the Province will be able to better serve its clients," said Pat Bell, minister of Agriculture and Lands. "We will be able to meet in a virtual sense with our colleagues across the province, thereby allowing for more efficient decision-making."
In all 15 video conferencing locations will be available, one at the Vancouver headquarters of Small Business BC, with nine being at FrontCounter BC locations, and five housed within the Canadian government’s Community Futures offices.
It is hoped the new program will give small businesses in the province the ability to communicate with others from all over Canada.
Also, with our increasingly environment conscience country, the fact that flights to speak with clients or other businesses will not longer be needed will help the environment.
