Ontario Small Business Events

Small business events provide opportunities for business professionals to grow, network, and stay competitive. Not only are they exceptional learning forums where one can hear industry leaders speak, but they also enable attendees to network with peers, connect to customers, learn about competitors, and spark innovation.

This July, consider attending a small business event tailored to support your business’ strategic growth initiatives.

At each of the events this month, attendees can connect with Mentor Works to discover how Canadian government funding supports business growth. Whether it’s to offset the cost of capital investments, market expansion, hiring, training, or research and development, government grants and loans are available to help. Look for Mentor Works’ team of Government Funding Planners and ask how funding can support your projects over the next 12-24 months.

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!
Thanks
Hema

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.
