Small businesses are the backbone of the Canadian economy employing 70% of the Canadian workforce and 54.2% of the economic output produced by the business sector.

With the right information and guidance, small businesses are easy to start and sustain. The Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC) is organising a symposium and an exhibition in collaboration with the City of Markham. The event is aimed at promoting entrepreneurialism. The program comprises an inauguration session and two panel discussions.

Alongside, a small business expo will also be held providing opportunity to small business service providers to exhibit their services or products.
