About

The Startup Canada Awards recognize those driving impact and demonstrating excellence in Canada’s entrepreneurship and innovation community.

Each year, hundreds of nominations pour in from across Canada, and thousands join us as we celebrate the regional winners at local, grassroots ceremonies in startup spaces and education hubs.  

This year, we are delighted to announce 6 regions for the 2017 Startup Canada Awards: British Columbia, Ontario, the Prairies, Quebec, the Atlantic, and the newest region the North! The Startup Canada Awards culminates in November 2017 with a red carpet Grand Finale in Toronto celebrating the national winners.
