Immigrant Business Expo 2018
November 17, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
All the information you need to start, grow, and manage your own small business in Canada.
Organized by New Horizons Media, in collaboration with the City of Toronto and a number of leading immigrant-serving organizations in Toronto, the third annual Immigrant Business Expo (IBE) is a one-day exhibition including workshops and small business clinics assisting newcomer, refugee and immigrant business owners.
Canada has a long and successful history of immigrant entrepreneurship. Many newcomers, refugees and immigrants aspire to own a profitable small business. However, there are specific challenges immigrants face when starting and operating a small business in the Canadian business landscape.
IBE aims to assist immigrants in navigating the sometimes complex requirements of operating a small business in Canada. IBE will connect them with government-funded and other community services and supports that help immigrants start or grow their own small businesses.
- Panel discussion by leading immigrant entrepreneurs
- Marketplace for immigrant-serving organizations and business service providers that support immigrants with starting a business in Canada
- Marketplace for immigrant entrepreneurs to showcase their businesses and services
