Business Assessment Program

The Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine is kicking off its Business Assessment Program to help businesses within the region access the expertise they need from a consultant in line with its Business Retention and Expansion Plan.

Business Assessments will be conducted by Certified Management Consultants from ClearThink Coaching group. Assessments are a collaborative process between the consultants and business owner to identify what their pain points are and practical solutions to them. The program will provide 10 businesses within the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine free business assessments on a first-come, first-served basis.

The program was launched with a business webinar offering a program overview from ClearThink Coaching Group. Businesses in attendance also received an outline of the business consulting rebate programs at Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT) and mentorship available through Export Navigator. You can watch a recording of the webinar here.

“This program aims to provide businesses easy access to a business coach with expertise and experience that adds value to our local businesses. It is important that we help our business keep their doors open. We are happy to work with business owners every step of the way in this program and refer them to other programs that can support them further.” –Walsham Tenshak, RDKS Economic Development Officer.
