Canada has a long and successful history of immigrant entrepreneurship. Many new immigrants and refugees aspire to own a profitable small business. However, there are specific challenges new immigrants face when starting and operating a small business in the Canadian business landscape.

IBE aims to assist new immigrants in navigating the sometimes complex requirements of operating a small business in Canada. IBE will connect them with government-funded and other community services and supports that help newcomers start or grow their own small businesses.
