The Edmonton Chamber of Commerce is recognizing and honouring entrepreneurs and their start-up companies. Join us in celebrating the nominees and congratulate the winner of the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce Ignition Award. 

Entrepreneurs and innovation are key to Canada’s future prosperity. Tony Clement, Treasury Board President, is leading government efforts to not only remove barriers to doing business but enhance opportunities in the booming new field of government data. Minister Clement will share details of the government’s sweeping red tape reduction action plan, arguably the most ambitious reform of business regulations in the world today. He will also discuss the government’s exciting Open Data initiative, part of a growing global trend of releasing important datasets collected by government agencies for the public to download. The Government of Canada is looking to partner with entrepreneurs and innovators interested in turning this valuable raw material into high-value, user friendly applications that benefit Canadians and boosts homegrown Canadian business.
