Brampton Small Business Town Hall hosted by MP Sonia Sidhu with Minister Bardish Chagger.
MP Sonia Sidhu invited Startup Peel Community to a Small Business Town hall on July 18, 2016 from 3pm – 5pm ET.
MP Sidhu opened the event by welcoming the many guests and shared the results of a press conference held earlier in the day.
Our event started off with an interactive presentation from Minister Chagger followed by great questions and suggestions from small business owners, Brampton Entrepreneur Centre and Brampton Board of Trade.
Minister Chagger spoke about the many Startup Canada Communities helping Startups and Small business launch and scale across Canada and thanked us for our dedication to helping to grow the ecosystem.
She covered many topics not limiting to Innovation and Community, support for Trade & Export, Pension Plan for Seniors, Financial Literacy and Clean Technology. The audience shared great ideas on how to make the economy better for businesses such as attracting and retaining talent here in Brampton.
Special thanks to Cristina’s Tortina Shop for the great cupcakes, one example of Brampton’s many small business supporting the ecosystem and to Algoma University Brampton, our venue host.
