CanadaOne has built a library of over 900 just-in-time business articles since its launch in March 1998, to meet its mission of helping small businesses access the information they need, just as they need it. The site also has a directory of over 20,000 ‘Verified Canadian’ businesses, a Canadian business events calendar and several tools to support businesses, like the financial ratios calculator.
Popular topics on the site are thinking out of the box, HR, marketing, sales, and how small companies can benefit from emerging technologies. The founders, Julie King and Kevin Jackson, are entrepreneurs who live what they write about. The thing that distinguishes CanadaOne from other online small business sites is its narrow focus on Canadian businesses, although many of the site’s articles outside of legal, finance and HR have an appeal to an international audience.
