Small Business Week

Small Business Week

In coordination with the Business Development Bank of Canada and numerous community partners, the Timmins Chamber of Commerce organizes a number of workshops and learning opportunities for entrepreneurs throughout Small Business Week.

This week features the annual Mayor’s State of the City address, as well as a series of presentations that cover such topics as starting and building a small business, workforce succession, and making better use of technology. The specific presentations to be made throughout Small Business Week are often determined closer to the date; also, partner organizations are responsible for scheduling their own events, though the Chamber promotes all events on a single calendar. This calendar is heavily promoted throughout the community in a variety of local media outlets.

Shop the Neighbourhood

Shop the Neighbourhood

Beginning in 2013 as an annual event, the Shop The Neighbourhood campaign encourages Canadians to vary their shopping behaviours to include support for small businesses within their community. Last year, more than 12,500 businesses across Canada participated – and more than a million Canadian consumers shopped local during the event. Now in its fourth year, Shop The Neighbourhood is officially a year-round campaign – just like local shopping is a year-round activity.

Put money back into your local economy and foster a sense of community spirit among both business owners and shoppers.

Welcome Night

Welcome to Timmins Night

Welcome to Timmins Night is a great opportunity for the many social, cultural and service organizations to showcase their goods and services for the benefit of new and long-standing residents. Exhibitors will be distributing information, and in some cases, accepting applications for membership in their respective organizations. Many draws are also held throughout the fun filled evening.

The evening could also prove beneficial to the “student community” in search of organizations that may be in need of volunteers. With the mandatory “community volunteer hours” that most students must complete in order to graduate, the Welcome to Timmins courtyard of community organizations could prove to be the ideal one stop shop for students in search of an organization of interest to them. This can be a win-win for the organizations, the educational institutions and the city’s student population.

Last year’s event attracted over 500 participants. For more information contact: Andrea Gaudreau, Tourism Timmins 705 360- 2619.
