Regional Business Liaison



My name is Shannon Clarke. I would like to introduce myself and explain how I can assist you in your business over the next few months.

I was recently hired as the Regional Business Liaison for Community Futures of Nadina.  The area I cover is Smithers, Telkwa, Houston, Topley, Granisle, Burns Lake, South Side and anywhere within this region.

I am here to provide businesses with information regarding resources to help you survive the downturn that has been caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.  Resources have been designed to help your business endure during the pandemic and assist in a more successful outcome after the pandemic.

Most of these resources have an educational component that requires some time and commitment on your part to have the most successful outcome.  Some of these resources provide coaching and expert advice, and others provide funding for you to get expert advice.

How the process works:

The first step is contacting me, together we will go through some questions to find out where you are at, what you need and where you want to go.  Once I have an idea of your needs, I will work for your benefit to search out the best possible resources for you.  I will then follow up with your options and together we can plan to move forward.

There is no charge for my services. I have been hired to assist you through the many programs and resources that have been made available to small businesses.  I understand the constraints of small business owners and I will work with you to make myself available at your convenience.

The first step is to contact me by phone (250) 845-2522 or by email

Below is a little background information about me personally:

I am a Chartered Professional Accountant.  I operated my own public practice in Houston for over 20 years, and only recently sold my practice.  I have helped and advised numerous small businesses from different sectors over the years.  I have extensive experience in filling out forms and applications.  In earlier years, I managed a fast-food restaurant, so I have some experience in the food industry.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to assisting you.  Support is here for you.
