Entrepreneurship Ecosystem

Startup Canada is building the connective infrastructure between the nodes of the business support community, creating a pan-Canada highway to accelerate entrepreneur growth and success.

Startup Canada is laying the foundations of Canada’s entrepreneurship infrastructure through the formation of local startup communities, the development of an online platform to connect the entrepreneurship community from coast to coast, and the establishment of signature flagship events, programs and initiatives to reinforce the community locally, regionally and nationally.
