Small businesses are a reflection of our community. It is small businesses that bring variety and energy, and make our community unique. They provide jobs and support families, and together they are the backbone of our economy.

This year, the Small Business Centre invites you to be inspired by the stories of local small businesses owners. People with different backgrounds and with distinct origins that are positively impacting our city and enhancing our business environment.

Here's How!

For the past 35 years, the Small Business Centre has been helping small businesses launch, grow and succeed. We work with hundreds of entrepreneurs every year, and during Small Business Week we want to introduce you to some of them!

Throughout Small Business Week, October 18-21, we will introduce you to businesses who have participated in our many programs. Join us for 4 panel discussions and Q&As to hear about their individual journeys and ask questions. It's your opportunity to be inspired and learn from those who are succeeding at pursuing their passions.

We also invite YOU to celebrate with the entrepreneurial community and inspire greatness by sharing your business tips, struggles or your success story! Connect with other local small businesses on social media with the hashtag #SmallBizLdnOnt
