The Canadian Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (CCSBE-CCPME) is the only national membership-based organization in Canada whose goals are to promote and advance the development of small business and entrepreneurship through research, education and training, networking and dissemination of scholarly and policy oriented information. Professors, consultants, entrepreneurs and related businesspersons, the members of the CCSBE influence thousands of students, practitioners, and decision makers in the Canadian entrepreneurial industry.
Each year, a conference is held in various parts of the country to attract delegates from around Canada and beyond to share research, best practices, and discuss the small business and entrepreneurship ecosystem in the nation. The 2013 CCSBE Conference, hosted by Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia, took place at the Hotel Grand Pacific in Victoria’s picturesque Inner Harbour.
This event is assoicated with the Pacific NorthWest Economic Region – Business Ideas Competition, hosted at Royal Roads University May 1-3, 2013
