Ontario Small Business Events

Arguably now more than ever, it is important for business leaders to stay in tune with how the business landscape is changing, and which opportunities are available to ensure their ongoing success. Although the global scale has tipped in the way matters function, businesses must continue to stay competitive and adapt to new consumer demands. One great way to foster and strategize these ideas, as well as gain insight on what is required to implement growth, recovery and innovation, is by attending webinars dedicated to small to medium-sized businesses.

Technological advancement offers great benefits as in-person events continue to be on hold. Consider attending a webinar this September to help support your business’ strategic recovery, growth, and innovation initiatives.

At each of the Mentor Work’s webinars this month, attendees will learn about how Canadian government funding supports businesses in areas such as pandemic recovery, economic growth, and tech innovation. Whether it is to offset the cost of capital investments, market expansion, hiring, training, or research and development, government grants and loans are available to countless sectors. Reach out to the Mentor Works team of Government Funding Planners and ask how government funding can assist your ongoing or upcoming projects.

September 3 – Government Funding to Scale Your Manufacturing Business

(Webinar) The North American manufacturing industry is poised for growth in 2020 and beyond. Because of this, Canada’s vast supply chain of part manufacturers should explore opportunities to scale operations, become more productive, and improve worker skills to support tech innovation.

Fortunately, government funding programs are available to offset the costs of manufacturing growth projects.

During this Funding to Scale Your Manufacturing Businesses webinar, attendees will learn about specific government grants and funding opportunities to hire and train employees, adopt new technologies, perform cutting-edge research and development projects, and reach export markets.

September 9 – COVID-19 Recuperation Support for Canadian Businesses

(Webinar) As the world continues to respond and follow the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, one of the most common questions we’re receiving is, “What is the government providing to support Canadian businesses affected by COVID-19?”

The government’s responsive actions evolve each day and we are watching closely for business funding stimulus in response to COVID-19.

During this webinar, we’ll share as much information as we can on what resources are available to support your business and where Mentor Works may be able to assist in terms of accessing available government funding incentives. Our primary goal is to help your business grow and succeed, and we’ll do our best to support you during this global transition.

September 10 – Growing Opportunities: Overcoming COVID’s Impact on Agri-Food

COVID-19 has shifted consumer spending behaviours and product demand, introducing challenges to the agriculture and agri-food sectors. An understanding of what has changed is crucial for any company looking to do business domestically or abroad. That’s why you won’t want to miss Export Development Canada’s (EDC’s) free webinar, Growing opportunities: Overcoming COVID’s impact on agri-food.

Brought to you by the EDC in collaboration with Farm Credit Canada (FCC), this webinar is airing live on Thursday, September 10, 2020, from 2 to 3 p.m. ET.

During this webinar you’ll learn how COVID-19 has affected the agriculture and agri-food sector, the economic outlook for the sector, and key opportunities for recovery and growth.

September 24 – Hiring & Training Grants for Workforce Development

(Webinar) Targeted hiring and training programs can help Canadian companies scale operations and reduce talent gaps. But despite the clear benefits of workforce development, few companies allocate enough capital to attracting and nurturing world-class talent.

Employers should consider tapping into government funding programs to boost hiring and training budgets.

During the Hiring & Training Grants for Workforce Development webinar, attendees will learn about the top government funding programs that can offset a portion of hiring and training costs by up to 50-83%.

Hello, Myra!
Looking to help my husband open a small business in food industry. He has over 11 yrs experience in the industry. Seems it is high time he works for himself. Since his English is not the best, thought I should initiate the process. Could you suggest or recommend seminars or first steps. He has worked for many food businesses and has an idea. However, I think he needs to know details and paperwork.
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated!

Hi Hema, thanks for your comment. The first step in establishing a business in Ontario is typically visiting a Small Business Enterprise Centre (SBEC). These centres have the expertise needed to consult you and your husband directly and provide the individualized support needed to get your business started.

Hi Rustum – Thanks for the insight into your business. The majority of government funding programs we discuss are reserved for established businesses with 15+ employees and other key eligibility factors. For smaller and/or younger organizations and entrepreneurs, we recommend referring to our Startup Resources Page. If you are 15+ employees and have been incorporated for over 3 years, let us know a bit more about your business by filling out our Contact Form, so we can explore funding opportunities towards these upcoming strategic investments.
