Prince Edward Island Small Business Week
Here in PEI, we have plenty of small businesses that are the backbone of our economy. We want to celebrate the many entrepreneurs that work hard every day to provide products, supports and services locally and across the globe. We've put together a calendar of upcoming events. Please note that as many events are virtual, some may not be represented in our local time zone. Please register in advance for events you're interested to ensure you are able to attend at the correct time. For a complete listing of BDC events across Canada, you can view their website for other great virtual events you may be interested in.
What is BDC Small Business Week?
BDC Small Business Week is an annual celebration of entrepreneurship that the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) has organized for over 40 years. Every year, close to 10,000 entrepreneurs gather to learn, network and celebrate the people building businesses across the country.
Forging the way forward
The coronavirus pandemic has caused one of the most important economic crises in history. In this unprecedented context, Canadian entrepreneurs have once again shown their courage and ability to adapt. This year for Small Business Week, Business Development Canada is taking the time to recognize their resilience, trying to understand what has changed for Canadian businesses and looking to build for the future in these uncertain times.
