Virtual Immigrant Business Expo 2022

February 19, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm


All the information you need to start, grow, and manage your own small business in Canada.

Organized by New Horizons Media Inc., in collaboration with leading immigrant-serving organizations in Canada, the first virtual Immigrant Business Expo (IBE) is a one-day exhibition including workshops and small business clinics for newcomer, refugee and immigrant business owners. Participants can join virtually from every part of the world.

Canada has a long history of successful immigrant entrepreneurship. Many newcomers, refugees and immigrants aspire to own a profitable small business. However, they are faced with specific challenges 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.


  • Panel discussion by leading immigrant entrepreneurs
  • Workshops on business topics and resources
  • Small business clinics with business experts and coaches
  • Marketplace for immigrant entrepreneurs to showcase their businesses and services
  • Marketplace for immigrant-serving organizations and business service providers that support immigrants with starting a business in Canada
