Succession Resources

This section of our website is to assist you in getting the right mind-set and encouraging early preparations for a successful retirement from your business.

Business succession will require active participation on your part, and in turn you are advised to seek the help of several professional advisors.

Business owners, business buyers, their families and successors can find additional support for retirement through associations, some Canadian universities and business professionals in our region.
