Small Business Week

BDC Small Business Week is a national celebration of Canadian entrepreneurs and their contribution to Canada’s economy. The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) has been organizing Small Business Week since 1979.[1] It takes place every year during the third full week of October. Events held during the week bring together entrepreneurs—and prospective entrepreneurs—at conferences, workshops, luncheons and trade fairs across Canada.[2] The goal is to provide them with opportunities to learn, network, share ideas and socialize with their peers


Thunder Bay Ventures, in conjunction with the CEDC, will be hosting its annual Youth Entrepreneurship Day.  High school students from across the city will be invited to learn about business from successful young entrepreneurs, hear about the Enter the Den high school business plan competition, and participate in fun activities!
