Sample business plans and templates can help you develop a professional document that will serve as an in-depth marketing tool to convince others of your venture’s potential for success. However, creating your own plan can be a complex process, and you may need the assistance of a professional (like an accountant) depending on the type of business you have (or want to run), and what you are seeking in terms of investment.
An excellent place to start your search for good examples of business plans is the Canada Business Network office in your region. Their Business Information Officers are able to provide you with access to materials that can be tailored to your needs. Your local Canada Business Network centre offers a wealth of information, including practical tools, guides, and specific examples on how to start the planning process.
The Canada Business Network also offers a list of many free tools to help you create your own business plan.
