For events hosted by SBC Ontario directly – they are virtual and open to all to attend. If there are events/workshops from individual Small Business Centres across Ontario, their event policies apply.

Registration is mandatory for all seminars, as seating is limited and each attendee needs to register with their individual first name, last name, email, city, in order to attend.

One ticket for each registration and please do not share registration links with non-registered parties. For security reasons, non-registered attendees may be removed from the meeting. We also ask you to identify your first name in the meeting so that we can confirm your registration. Failure to do so may result in non-admittance.

Small Business Centres Ontario reserves the right to reschedule or cancel a seminar due to speaker conflicts or insufficient registration. Minimum registrant requirements vary. We strive to let clients know if an event has to be rescheduled or cancelled at least 48hrs or two business days before the event.

Events will not be recorded and, recordings will not be available to attendees. However, if the speaker chooses to share their presentation slides with participants, only those who attended the event will receive a copy following the event.

If you require accommodation, please notify us by email at least 4 weeks before the event date at

Late Arrival Policy:
We ask that participants do their best to arrive at least 5 minutes before event start times. Any interruptions can adversely affect both the presenter and fellow attendees. Late arrival to an event may result in non-admittance.

Cancellations/No Shows:
Please note that all our workshops and seminars have limited seating and is very important that you notify us as soon as possible if you are unable to attend.

If there are fees associated with events, there are no refunds for reservations cancelled less than 48 hours before the event.

Please note photos and video can be taken throughout our seminars and events which may include your image.
