Cornwall, Ontario – Entrepreneurs looking to up their game can take advantage of several webinars and workshops this fall.

The Cornwall Business Enterprise Center will host a fall learning series over several weeks starting at the end of September, covering topics such as business plan writing, finance, marketing and sales.

“We are delighted to be able to provide training to small businesses in Cornwall, Akwesasne and unrelated SDG counties,” said Shauna Baggs, Business Consultant at the Centre. “Each webinar is designed to help entrepreneurs improve their business skills and connect with other small business owners in the community.”

Fall Webinar and Workshops

  • September 27 – How to Write a Business Plan
  • October 4 – Prepare a financial forecast
  • October 11 – Create your brand
  • October 18 – Market Research
  • October 20 – Round table of entrepreneurs
  • October 25 – Social start
  • November 8 – Learn how to pitch your business to investors

  • …additional webinars to follow

The fall series is a continuation of the Centre’s popular spring series. Participation is free, but participants are requested to register in advance.

“We know that small business owners’ time is limited, so we’ve tailored the webinars into a lunch and learn format,” says Baggs. “Most webinars will be held online Tuesdays from noon to 1:00 p.m., allowing business owners to plan ahead and register for the topic(s) they find most interesting.”

Bridges to Better Business – October 19

In addition to the webinars and workshops above, Bridges to Better Business returns on October 19. This one-day event is organized in partnership with ACC Futures and the Cornwall and Area Chamber of Commerce. Watch for more information as it becomes available.


The Cornwall Business Enterprise Center provides entrepreneurs and small business owners with the support needed to start and grow successful businesses. Training programs such as the webinar and fall workshops are led by professionals who can provide advice and information on best practices. All webinars and workshops are available on the CBEC website:
