Do you want to help your business? You need to attend this event!

The Government of Canada is organizing a Small Business Information Expo (SBIE) to help you get the information you need on a range of key business support programs and services. From financing, to hiring, to innovation, to doing business with the government, to exports and more, you will find support that you didn’t even know existed!

What’s more, Canadian black owned or led small businesses will find many programs specifically aimed at helping them!

All are welcome to attend free of charge.

  • When: Wednesday, April 14th and Thursday, April 15th
  • Time: 10 AM to noon
  • What: Tradeshow/business to business (B2B) setup with interactive panel discussions
  • Where: Online
  • Cost: FREE!

In the main tradeshow, you will be able to talk to program representatives in a one-on-one setting for information relevant to your business. Meanwhile, the panel discussions will employ a “lightning round” setup to give you an overview of support available on:

  • Accessing Financing
  • Finding Innovation Support Programs

We are looking forward to your participation! Places are limited, so make sure you register now!

Once you register, you will receive more information in the weeks leading up to the event.
