COVID-19 Announcement: March 19th, 2020
The Great BC Business Sale has suspended active initiatives and workshops until further notice due to the impacts of COVID-19. The focus in the province now is one of support and sustainability for BC businesses to provide assistance with the impacts of COVID-19. We are following the protocol as laid out by the government with regard to large gatherings of people and suspension of non-essential travel. The GBCBS is a much-needed initiative that provides business owners with a platform to showcase their businesses for sale, further communications regarding the initiative will be shared as our province emerges from this health crisis.
We are staying connected to the latest information from the government and will post updates as we continue to adjust to extenuating circumstances. We are reviewing contingency plans and will share our thoughts as the situation becomes clearer.

Brought to you by Community Futures, it's the only tradeshow in the province where BC lower mainland, inter-provincial, and international buyers meet with business sellers, government, community representatives and business service providers to learn about business and investment opportunities in rural and non-metropolitan BC. Adding additional value, the GBCBS will be followed by a Virtual Tradeshow in January 2021.
