Learn the simple steps to protect yourself and your business online.
E-Business Privacy and Security
There are several strategies that can help you reduce the risks you and your customers face when doing business online. Be aware of these risks and take steps to deal with them before they become problems.
Naming Your Business
Choose the name for your business carefully. It will precede you wherever you go!
Privacy and Your Business
The way you treat your clients' information matters. In Canada, most businesses have to comply with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) which regulates how you may collect, use and disclose the personal information you gather as you do business. Some provinces, territories and industry sectors are subject to other regulations.
Choosing a Business Structure
The structure of your business will depend on whether you want to run your business yourself or with a partner or associates. There are four types of business structures: sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations and co-operatives.
Insurance and Bonding
The right type of business insurance can provide peace of mind in both your personal and business life.
