The North End Business Development Centre located at 607 Selkirk Avenue has been developed with the community in mind. Our role is to be a single window resource centre for the community as a whole. Current and budding entrepreneurs can find resource material on starting a business, funding sources, inventory of business facilities and more. The business community also gathers here to collaborate on opportunities to strengthen their business and the community.
Providing an assessment of each individuals’ needs allows us to provide an appropriate referral to a partner agency that can provide the services required. This can include business plan development courses, start-up funding and loans as well as ongoing mentorship services.
Need a place to work on your business plan during the development phase, or a location to meet with suppliers? We have, available by appointment, an office workstation and facility that will allow you to accomplish these goals.
Perhaps you need statistical information or direction regarding our North End community. We have available summary reports of these demographic and socio-demographic statistics.

It is our goal to not duplicate the valuable work provided by our partner agencies, rather support their efforts by providing appropriate referrals during your business development stage. Our goal is to assist in locating your new business in our North End Community, provide ongoing collaboration support with your new business community and work to develop an environment that is attractive to business and consumers.
