The Great BC Business Saleis on hold for the time beingplease visit for updates


The Great BC Business Sale (GBCBS) is a Community Futures initiative. Community Futures is a non-profit organization in rural BC with a mandate for small business and community economic development.  There are 34 Community Futures offices in BC.

The GBCBS is a two year long initiative and collaboration of government and non-governmental partners working together to promote and support entrepreneurship in rural and non-metropolitan regions of British Columbia where unique lifestyle, relative affordability and career opportunities abound.

The initiative includes considerable planning and preparation to make the GBCBS tradeshow a successful and valuable event for all participants and concludes with post event support to buyers and sellers and matrix tallying and evaluation.

The GBCBS tradeshow will showcase an unprecedented collection of vetted business and investment opportunities, accessible at one time and in one place to new and seasoned local, distant and international buyers and investors in a tradeshow setting.

Attendees will have access to a large and diverse group of government and non-governmental businesses and agencies to answer questions on anything from community amenities to moving tax credits, to business financing and Provincial Nominee Programs, to name just a few.

In preparation for the sale, workshops and individual support will be available throughout the province to business owners and community stakeholders. Training for novice entrepreneurs and foreign business buyers will be held at the Vancouver Trade and Conventions Centre on October 2, 2020. Recognizing the delicate choreography of actions to conclude a business sale, expert support and mediation services will be available to participating buyers and sellers following the tradeshow.
