You are invited to attend Hamilton's first annual Immigrant Business Expo (IBE). Organized by New Horizons Media Inc. in collaboration with HIPC, Hamilton Economic Development, and Mohawk College, IBE is a one-day exhibition including workshops and small business clinics assisting newcomer, refugee and immigrant business owners. There is no registration fee, but attendees must register in advance.
IBE aims to assist immigrants in navigating the sometimes complex requirements of operating a small business in Canada. Visitors can connect with government-funded and other community services and supports that help immigrants start or grow their own small businesses.
Date: Saturday, November 23, 2019; 9:30 am to 2:30 pm
Venue: Mohawk College, The Joyce Centre for Partnership and Innovation, 135 Fennell Ave. W, Hamilton (limited number of free parking spots available)
