UTB Small Business Centre

 Welcome to UTB Small Business Centre

We are working to gather resources to provide you with information about small businesses in one place. 

We hope to achieve a page that provides answers, articles, links to grants and anything else that might help you in your small business journey. 

There are links from business professionals and working materials we have used to help set up our small business. 

Check back frequently as we continue to build and update the page. Are you a service that can help other small businesses? Want to share some insights? Send us an email at info@uniquetownboutique.ca to connect. We're better together.
