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

IBE aims to assist 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 immigrants start or grow their own small businesses.
