In partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development and Growth, the Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science, York Region, and the Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs, YSBEC and all Small Business Enterprise Centres (SBECs) are dedicated to providing support to startup and small businesses during their initial years of development and operation.
