Startup Canada

Entrepreneurs working together to build and give a voice to the Canadian Startup community.

Startup Canada is the gateway to Canada's entrepreneurial ecosystem.

We're here to connect entrepreneurs with the support, community, and tools they need to build a successful business in Canada. Since our inception in 2012, Startup Canada has grown to support more than 122,000 entrepreneurs annually and an ever-growing grassroots community network from coast to coast to coast. Through our flagship and digital programs, we provide guidance, eliminate barriers, and champion the needs of each and every entrepreneur to private and public sector partners. Startup Canada supports entrepreneurs in starting up and scaling up to ultimately make Canada the best place to start and build a business.

Scotiabank is proud to sponsor National activities including: The Startup Women Program, Startup Global Program, Startup Women Podcast, and Startup Canada Tour.
