In order to view the BVP listings, you must first register with your email address and create a user profile. You will also be asked to indicate your business interests and needs. You may register as a “seller” to list investor opportunities, or as an “investor” to browse potential investments. An email confirmation will be sent to you once your registration is complete, allowing you to access listings.

Every time you login, the BVP website will showcase a customized list of business opportunities, targeted to your business goals and priorities. Some of these businesses are not advertised publicly, and will only list basic information (i.e. a location and business sector). More information is available for these businesses upon request. You can also learn about specific communities in Chatham-Kent by visiting the “Community Profiles” page.
