Our Contractor Owners Groups (COGs) give you access to professional business consultation services and support at a fraction of the cost of hiring a private consultant. Join a small group of like-minded business owners and share facilitated learning and discussions on key topics that impact you and your business.

  • Each COG will be a small group of 6-8 VICA members, representing different trade scopes.
  • Members will never be in the same group as one of their competitors.

A key focus of the COGs program is to help you transition from working ‘in’ your business to working ‘on’ your business. This shift in mindset will enable you to move from working in your business just to earn a wage, to using your business as a tool to create wealth for yourself.

Before we jump into the program, we are hosting free info sessions (with lunch) in Victoria and Nanaimo. Learn more by clicking the location below that's closest to you.
