What to expect from Startup Canada

Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the Startup Canada team is committed to serving Canadian businesses. We understand the current circumstances are incredibly challenging, and we’d like to offer our solidarity and support however we can.

Firstly, we will be closely monitoring social media and sharing updates on Twitter

We are also still running all of our digital programs. We urge you to take advantage of these programs as opportunities to connect with and learn from entrepreneurs across Canada.
