Every small business goes through peaks and valleys as they grow

Every small business goes through peaks and valleys as they grow. Over the past few months, every small business has faced unique experiences and learned valuable lessons that helped them move forward, and there is no better way to learn than from one another.

In this customer-focused event, you will hear from other small businesses from across Canada, who will share their experiences on how they have adapted their business, elevated their brand and overcome challenges. Finalists of our Small Business Tales of Triumph contest, they are working tirelessly to build and grow their businesses, like you. The panel discussions will enable you to hear their story, ask questions, and gain first-hand knowledge from your peers.

Whether your business is brick-and-mortar or digitally rooted, you are part of people’s everyday lives. We want you to walk away feeling supported and as a part of a rich community of Canadian small businesses.
