Business Incubators in Alberta and Canada

Business Incubators in Alberta and Canada-A Resource Directory

Business incubators provide space, services, advice and support to assist new and growing businesses to become established and profitable. They provide their client companies with business support services and resources. A business incubator’s main goal is to produce successful firms that will leave the program financially viable and freestanding.

The other goals of incubation programs are creating jobs, retaining businesses in a community, building or accelerating growth in a local industry and diversifying local economies. Business incubators have the ability to bring creativity, resources, entrepreneurship and workforce together, and thus cause the economy in the surrounding area to flourish.

This website was developed as a resource guide to assist rural communities and organizations in Alberta aspiring to develop incubation and business retention programs. They can use this directory as a source of information on business incubators located in Alberta and other provinces of Canada. The directory includes brief profiles and contact information of business incubators located in Alberta and Canada.

The directory is intended for guidance and information only. It identifies resources available on the web, but is not considered an all-inclusive listing.
