Buying A Small Business in Central Alberta

Looking at buying a small business?

Buying a business can be a smart investment, but it’s very different than starting a business from the ground up.

In order to buy a small business, you’ll likely need capital to pay for:

  • Acquiring fixed assets such as shares, real estate, or equipment
  • Intellectual property or copyrights
  • Marketing & communications
  • Training & certifications

Our team of Business Advisors is here to walk you through business planning for all scenarios (good or worse) to ensure you have the resources and financing you need to succeed when you decide to purchase a business.
