We all know a few. Their stories are legendary.

Do you have one of those stories? A story so good people will be telling their friends about it for years?

Well, we want to hear from you!

I'm Bardish Chagger, Canada's Minister of Small Business and Tourism.

And if you have a legendary business idea or an innovative new product invention, it's time for you to be centre stage!

It's the story – your story, your journey – that counts.

[Videos of entrepreneurs in discussion and working together appear on screen.]

Minister Chagger: You are the next generation of entrepreneurs. And you will be the ones creating jobs and growing the economy of tomorrow.

This will be your chance to get to know mentors and to mingle with government and industry leaders.

[Videos of young people in hard hats on a construction site, photos of young people at a podium and a large group photo of youth and Minister Chagger together appear on screen.]

We will celebrate your achievements and the important role that young Canadian entrepreneurs are playing right across the country.

This is your chance to be one of these legendary young Canadians!

And I'm eager to hear all about it.


So good luck, and make sure you get your videos in by the deadline.
