Last week, the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF) and Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) were proud to partner with the Government of Canada in officially declaring 2011 as the Year of the Entrepreneur.

This declaration underscores the critical role entrepreneurs are playing in Canada. It provides the springboard from which educators, entrepreneur organizations, and the public and private sectors can work together to create the ‘ecosystem’ that will plant the seeds to open young minds to entrepreneurial thinking.

Year of the Entrepreneur is a call to Canada’s strong network of small business owners (like you!) to join together to assist and inspire each other. This is your opportunity to stand up and be proud of being an entrepreneur. This is your chance to have a part in creating the best possible environment for small business to thrive in this country.

In celebration of this, CYBF and CFIB have partnered to provide CYBF entrepreneurs and mentors with an exclusive CFIB annual membership offer of just $99! For nearly 40 years, CFIB has represented the interests of the small business community to all three levels of government in their fight for tax fairness, reasonable labour laws and reduction of regulatory paper burden. Take advantage of this special membership opportunity here.
