Are you one of Canada’s top industry executives? Register to attend the Startup Canada Innovation Forum in Toronto on May 18, and build the future of Canada’s small business economy.

This exclusive event brings together, celebrates and creates a platform for influential executives, high-growth entrepreneurs and government decision makers to share and spread ideas on the role of industry in building an innovative and entrepreneurial country. 

Why? Small businesses play an integral role in the Canadian economy, accounting for 97.9% of all firms in Canada, and creating 87% of all new jobs. To create a supportive environment for these companies today, and to foster success for the future, Canadian entrepreneurs and innovators require a more robust and unified effort from government, industry and support organizations.


  • Hear high-impact TED-style talks from Canada’s best-known innovators and policy leaders;
  • Hear exclusive insights on the state of the entrepreneurship in Canada and globally;
  • Learn about the vision for the role of anchor companies in building an entrepreneurial country; and,
