Hello from Canada..
I own a third generation diversified metals processing company whose main products hold, fix, or fasten pipe, cable, conduit, and wire behind the walls, above the ceiling, or below the floor (or exposed in places like garages and industrial plants). This core business pays the freight, allowing me to invest in new businesses and to invest time in worthwhile projects. Relative to this site, I am Vice Chair of the Canadian Association of Family Enterprise, and President of their Greater Toronto Area Chapter: http://cafecanada.ca/ http://www.cafecanada.ca/gta/
We are looking to leverage the individual pockets of experience and advice into a vibrant and dynamic networked resource. Initially, we thought a Canadian wiki would be a good place to start. My friend Cheryl Stein referred me here, and this might be an even better way to engage the family business community both in Canada and around the world..
