Business Acquisition
Quebec (Canada)

COPLAN is a family business assisting business people and senior executives. We offer turnkey solutions: for real estate investment, company acquisition, business start-up and real estate advisory services. We have a large network built over several decades throughout Quebec: bankers, industrial commissioners, accountants, real estate agents, lawyers, etc. This allows us to access business opportunities that are not on the market and that will directly respond to your experience, budget, skills and experiences.

We only work with the buyer to negotiate a Win-Win deal between our client and the seller.

Why Quebec?

The acceleration of population aging that will occur in Quebec over the next twenty years will be unequaled in all industrialized countries. In the next 10 years, 30% of business owners will retire (source: Government of Quebec).
