Supporting Your Small Business

The York Small Business Enterprise Centre (YSBEC) is your one-stop shop to help start and grow your business. Funded by the Regional Municipality of York and the Government of Ontario, we provide free services in the northern six York Region municipalities: Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King, Newmarket and Whitchurch-Stouffville.

The YSBEC team will provide you with the information you need to succeed and grow your business. Through our consultation services, you can book a one-on-one, one-hour appointment with one of our knowledgeable business consultants, or join a group consultation session with other entrepreneurs and small business leaders.

Together we can take an in-depth look at your business or startup idea and weigh its strengths and weaknesses to determine how to build upon what you do well, and manage and improve upon the areas that require more work. We can assess the opportunities and challenges your business faces near and far, and through competitive analysis, zero in on what your niche is and what differentiates your business from your competitors.
