How Halifax Partnership can support your small business

Posted: October 16, 2019

Did you know that 94% of Halifax businesses have fewer than 50 employees? Small businesses make up a significant portion of our business community and are a vital contributor to our city’s economic growth.

October 21-25 is BDC Small Business Week, which celebrates these entrepreneurs and brings them together to learn and network. This week and all year round, the Partnership has a number of programs and initiatives to support your business’s growth.

How the Halifax Partnership can help your small business:

  • The SmartBusiness Program can help you navigate the world of export to reach new customers outside Nova Scotia, or connect to commercialization and R&D funding and resources.
  • The Connector Program can match you with new immigrants or recent graduates in your industry looking to build their professional network in Halifax.
  • The Experiential Learning Initiative can connect you with post-secondary institutions and students in Nova Scotia, support you in offering experiential learning opportunities, and connect you to resources such as funding and grants.
  • The Atlantic Immigration Pilot team can assist you with navigating the AIP employer designation process to hire international workers and graduates to fill immediate labour needs.
  • Our research team tracks key economic indicators that detail trends affecting Halifax’s business climate.
