Education and Training

 Please note that the Huron Business Development Corporation (HBDC) will be running their Business By Design workshop that helps people investigate and prepare for starting a small business or assist them in arriving at the conclusion that running a small business may not be the right choice!  The workshops takes place January 29th at the Huron Business Centre starting at 10:00am. As usual, there is absolutely no charge for attending as this event is provided as a service to Huron County residents - although space is limited so registration is required.  Call the office at 519-527-0305 to register!  For more information please follow this link to the HBDC flyer.

Note: as this workshop is repeated on the last Friday every 2 months, there is no ‘snow day’. If it is cancelled due to weather, we simply stick to the bi-monthly schedule.

Huron County Ag Ambitions Program is an opportunity to “be your own boss” and is the dream for many youth in rural Ontario.
