Starting or Expanding

Starting or expanding a business is an exciting challenge and we want to help.  Our staff and councillors work closely with regional and provincial partners to keep up to date with business developments.

Developing a business plan is one of the first steps you should take. The better prepared you are to properly assess the potential risks involved the more likely you are to overcome problems when they occur. You can download a basic business plan template from this site and get help developing a business plan from the Business Hub or your financial institution.

If your business plan includes any new construction or a change in use or intensity of your existing business, you may require a development permit and/or other permits.

The Hanna Business Hub is an excellent resource for business owners. It provides support and mentorship, generates new business opportunities, and provides workspace.  Visit the Hanna Business Hub to learn more.


The main east-west route through Hanna is Highway 9, and the main north-south route is Highway 26. These highways are primary routes for both east/west and north/south trucking and transport.

Highway 36 is a high-load corridor that can accommodate heavy and oversized industrial traffic.
