We would like to specially acknowledge the Business Council of Canada as the founding partner of Business + Higher Educational Roundtable (BHER). As both the founding and a funding partner, the Business Council of Canada is a leader in supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs.

Founded in 1976, the Business Council of Canada is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization representing business leaders in every region and sector of the country. The Council’s member companies employ 1.7 million Canadians, contribute the largest share of federal corporate taxes, and are responsible for most of Canada’s exports, corporate philanthropy, and private-sector investments in research and development. Through supply chain partnerships, service contracts and mentoring programs, Business Council members support many hundreds of thousands of small businesses and entrepreneurs in communities of all sizes, in every part of Canada.
