“Few things are guaranteed in life, but as a business owner, the evolution of ownership of your business at some point is inevitable. This is why it’s critical that ownership be transferred to the right person. Succession planning plays an important role in this decision, and can help ensure your legacy be left in good hands. Many Canadian businesses are family-run, and every entrepreneur would love it if their child one day took over the family business. However, a study by The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) found that 52% business owners do not have a succession plan in place. Without a proper succession plan, the future of both your business and your family could be at risk.”
