The Canadian Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (CCSBE) is the only member-based organization in Canada whose goal is to promote and advance the development of small business and entrepreneurship. Run by a volunteer Board of Directors, CCSBE works to create a network of academics, practitioners, and policy influencers who are interested in discussing and sharing best practices and research in the field.

Le Conseil canadien pour les PME et l’entrepreneuriat (CCPME) est la seule organisation canadienne basée sur l’adhésion des membres dont le but est de promouvoir et de favoriser le développement des petites entreprises et de l’entrepreneuriat. Dirigé par un conseil d’administration où siègent des bénévoles, le CCPME cherche à mettre en place un réseau de protagonistes influents issus des milieux universitaire, civique et politique intéressés à échanger sur les pratiques exemplaires et les recherches qu’ils effectuent sur le terrain.

Message from the President

Welcome to the Canadian Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship!

The mission of CCSBE is to connect and provide resources to academics, researchers, practitioners and policy makers of the Canadian entrepreneurship industry. As we enter into a new year and a welcome many new members to the Board of Directors, we are filled with anticipation on the things that we can accomplish.

Throughout the next year we will be working to fulfill a number of goals including a push for new members, a revamp of our flagship publication, The Journal for Small Business & Entrepreneurship, and a consolidated effort to increase the visibility and attendance at the Annual CCSBE Conference.

Please go through the website for information on all of the member benefits and opportunities that CCSBE can provide. We look forward to continuing to serve our members as best we can and welcome your participation and feedback on any and all events that CCSBE offers.
