SLBDC and Me!Jan 14
I’m Don Anderson, General Manager of the Sarnia-Lambton
Business development Corporation, which is a Community Futures
Development Corporation (CFDC).
We are involved in providing business counselling services to
entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs in the Lambton County
community. We can assist with many aspects of your business
operations, as we have over 120 years of entrepreneurial experience
with our staff in various industries. Related to this is the delivery
of the Ontario Self Employment Benefit (OSEB) program which assist new
entrepreneurs in developing and implementing a business plan to get
their business operational, while assisting them through the
establishment and ongoing operation of their business.
In addition to business counseling services, we also provide loans to
businesses, both established and start-ups for expansion, equipment
acquisition, assistance with working capital, etc.
We are also involved in various programs working with youth, culinary
tourism, downtown beautification, etc.
I enjoy my role in this organization as it allows me to employ over
30 years of experience (yes, Eamon, I’m really old !)in working with
businesses and business organizations throughout Ontario to assist
businesses and organizations in Lambton County. I get to work with
terrific staff everyday, a marvelous board of directors, as well as to
meet and work with great entrepreneurs, and supporting organizations,
as well !
