Small Business Preparedness

Small businesses are integral to British Columbia’s goods and services supply chain. In 2015, there were approximately 388,500 small businesses operating across the province, representing 98 per cent of all businesses in B.C.

If you are a small business owner, you have likely invested a significant amount of time, energy and money in your operation. Depending on its size, you may have employees that rely on it for income and stability.

Use the PreparedBC: Guide for Small Businesses (PDF) as a starting point for protecting that investment.

Then, complete the PreparedBC: Emergency Plan for Small Businesses (PDF) and you will be well on your way to ensuring your business is prepared to be up and running as soon as possible following any type of emergency or business disruption.
