Small businesses are the backbone of Nova Scotia's economy, creating jobs and economic benefit in their communities.

Small Business Week (October 18 to 24) is an opportunity to recognize the hard work of small business owners in Nova Scotia and celebrate their resilience and determination throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Entrepreneurs develop new products, services, and new ways of working. This has been especially true as many small businesses adapted their business models during the pandemic to produce hand sanitizer, protective barriers, and non-medical, washable face masks. Others saw opportunities to help Nova Scotians stay safe or stay home by developing shopping websites, online platforms for concerts and home product delivery.

Join us in saying “Happy Small Business Week” to our Nova Scotia Small Business Owners!
