This is interesting.
The Canadian Virtual Assistant Connection, a website to help assistants connect with each other and with clients, lists five assistants in New Brunswick. There are dozens listed in Ontario and British Columbia, and hundreds on other sites listed in the United States and Europe.
Virtual assistants give busy entrepreneurs the help they need without the cost of hiring new staff. They are qualified professionals who work off-site, using phone, fax and email, and can handle everything from word processing and spread sheets to web design.
Fees for administrative support range from $25 to $50 an hour; many are on a monthly retainer.
