We have changed our name to:
Small Business Services.
Our website will remain available and our content will stay the same as we work to update the name throughout the website. You can expect to see both the Canada Business Ontario and Small Business Services names appearing on the site temporarily as we make this transition.
Market research is the process of gathering information to better understand your customers and competitors. The information you learn can help you make educated decisions about your business, your target market and your products or services.
