Our History

SBCS is a business operated by Lakehead University Honours Bachelors of Commerce students. From 1972 to 1993, the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Technology (MITT) funded SBCS by providing operating grants and variable for the organization. In April 1993, MITT announced that it was no longer funding the organization. As a result, a team of students decided to operate the business independently of MITT. Not only did SBCS provide employment for two full-time and twelve part-time consultants, the business also earned record profits in 1993. It has operated in this manner to this day.
