The Succession Planning Project was created to address the need for succession planning education and resources within our rural entrepreneurial communities. Many business owners in Alberta's rural areas are looking to transition out of their businesses in the foreseeable future and we want to ensure that they have the knowledge and tools to do so as successfully as possible. With this project we are also endeavoring to reduce the number of businesses just shutting down, as that has a detrimental impact on small rural towns.
