For those who are unfamiliar with the TED organization, they are a non-profit group that brings together the leading experts from the areas of Technology, Entertainment, and Design. TEDx programs were designed to inspire and promote innovation within organizations and communities. These events provide a great opportunity for businesses that are looking into the Canadian government grants for hiring new employees. Those who are in attendance will have the opportunity to network and recruit some of Canada’s most enthusiastic and innovative young minds.
