I have trouble getting my head around GEW. As an international event it's a growing force, and a welcome shot in the arm for grassroots capitalism around the world at a time when Big Business is under increasing attack (much of it justified). In Canada, GEW has the misfortune of directly following Small Business Week (and in some places, Small Business Month), creating a sense of deja vu.
This year GEW Canada is under the wing of the Canadian Youth Business Foundation. There's a goodly number of events across the country. as well as a number of "national" events delivered online. You can check out the schedule here: http://www.unleashingideas.org/canada/activities_calendar
You can even search for events by province (there are four next week in Manitoba, for instance).
Or you can read up generally on GEW here. http://www.unleashingideas.org/canada/activities_calendar
Have a great Week. Hug an entrepreneur.
