Ladysmith has partnered with Small Business BC to launch a new webinar program that will teach businesses about everything from planning and marketing to legal.

The Town’s participation in the 2016 Business Walk earlier this year led to the opportunity.

A second seminar is scheduled for Nov. 28 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on succession planning. The cost is $49 and the session is being run by Michael Timms of Avail Leadership.
