Small Business Week is a BDC  national initiative to celebrate of Canadian entrepreneurs and their contribution to Canada’s economy. Locally, we strive to celebrate entrepreneurs in every stage of business during this week – aspiring, start-up, and established businesses. This year, the theme for Small Business Week is

“Dare to do things differently: Power Up Your Growth.” and there isn’t a community leader that could fit this theme any better than Chief Terry Paul, CEO and Chief of Membertou First Nation.

We’re very excited to have Chief Terry Paul join us for our Small Business Week Kick-Off, where he will deliver his keynote address, “Roadblocks are Opportunities.” over breakfast.
