Innovating Rural Communities

Grow your network.

IGNITE YBL is for young professionals interested in building local connections.

Hosted in rural communities across the province, YBL provides a comfortable environment for young entrepreneurs, business owners, students, and those interested in business to find commonalities.

Due to the growing concern about the spread of COVID-19 and the restrictions around meeting in person, IGNITE and the Northern Connector Program have brought the Young Business Leaders meetups online! Using Zoom as our virtual space we can still share stories, get advice, and meet new people, all from the comfort of our own homes. You might be surprised who might drop in and join the conversation! We look forward to seeing you all online!


I’m new to the Truro & Colchester community and this was a great way to meet and network with people I’m still in contact with!
