For Immediate Release                                                                                  January 9, 2018

A New Startup Canada Community Launches in Greater Moncton

Moncton, NB, Canada – Startup Moncton is pleased to announce its launch as the latest Startup Canada Community of business professionals and organizations to form in New Brunswick.

Startup Moncton is a grassroots entrepreneur-driven not-for-profit movement, bringing together entrepreneurs and community stakeholders focused on enhancing the entrepreneurial ecosystem within Moncton, Dieppe, and Riverview. Its vision is to create new customer and partner opportunities for local entrepreneurs, by giving them a voice and connecting them through inspiration and support by means of mentors and resources. The organization makes support and resources easier for local entrepreneurs to find by creating a single point-of-entry through Startup Moncton.

“We foster an atmosphere of inclusivity, welcome diversity, and encourage more entrepreneurs to act as a community leader,” said Debbie Collins, founding entrepreneur of Startup Moncton.

Startup Moncton is pleased to be supported by the following community partners: Opportunities NB, 3+ Corporation, NBCC Oasis, McKenzie College, CCNB, Telus, Université de Moncton, Investors Group, Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce, National Research Council and the Moncton Public Library.

Through these partnerships, Startup Moncton hopes to provide value to the startup entrepreneur community by taking a leadership role to promote sustainability and growth of the fabric of the entire business network. Startup Moncton also strongly believes that a strong startup business community embraces all types of business ideas and aspirations – traditional and non-traditional, online and offline.

ONB has embraced the national Startup Canada model as a best practice for New Brunswick communities. The model nurtures the culture, the spirit and actions of entrepreneurship throughout the province. “We’re so excited to have Startup Moncton as part of this provincial strategy that helps local entrepreneurs,” said Raphael Albert, Business Development Associate with ONB.

ABOUT​ ​STARTUP​ ​CANADA​ ​COMMUNITIES

Startup Canada Communities is Startup Canada’s flagship program, supporting and connecting grassroots networks that fuel a culture and environment for entrepreneurship at the local level.

At the core, Startup Communities:

  • Provide entrepreneurs with opportunities to connect with inspiration, support, mentors, financing, resources, customers, and partners;
  • Bring together local entrepreneurship organizations to foster collaboration, information sharing, resource optimization, and ignite new opportunities; and,
  • Connect to the national network to open up new partners, opportunities and initiatives to local entrepreneurs; grow exposure across Canada and globally; and have a voice in Ottawa.

Currently there are more than 50 Startup Canada Communities across 9 provinces and 1 territory. Startup Canada provides the infrastructure to connect communities across the country to peer-support, advisors, funders and other important resources to strengthen the environment for entrepreneurship from bottom-up. Through the network, Startup Canada Communities are able to provide and connect entrepreneurs to the resources they need by offering a roadmap to local and national resources and access to national programming and events.

Startup Canada offers these communities a platform to advocate for the needs of entrepreneurs across Canada. Startup Canada Day on the Hill is a vehicle in which entrepreneurs’ challenges and successes are brought to the forefront and solutions are formed.

Rotary Resurgo Club

Public Dialogue – #MeTooMoncton

The Rotary Resurgo Club will host a Public Dialogue on the #MeToo Movement

Following the eruption of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Rotary Resurgo is urging the Greater Moncton community to join them in this important dialogue focused on the topic of sexual harassment and misconduct happening in our own back yards. This public dialogue will take place Tuesday, December 12th at 6pm at the Wingate Hotel, 69 rue du Marché, Dieppe, NB. Simultaneous translation and light refreshments will be provided.

A worldwide movement called #MeToo has started whereby victims of sexual predators such as Weinstein (famed cinema producer) are coming forward to expose the crimes of their perpetrators. Closer to home in Quebec, other celebrities such as Gilbert Rauzon (JustForLaughs Founder) and Eric Salvail (TV personality and producer) have also been exposed for their abuse of power during professional settings, resulting in inappropriate behaviour at best, and harassment or assault at worst.

With so many people being exposed on a weekly basis, the question is to be asked if this type of behaviour also exists in the Greater Moncton community.  Through two interviews conducted on the topic on BuzzlocalTV Moncton-Dieppe Riverview, it would appear that this is indeed the case and that we are protecting “open secrets”. The big question that we should ask ourselves is: why are we silent?

In true Rotary Resurgo fashion, we will try to get to the crux of this complex topic through subject-matter experts and a facilitated two-part dialogue, starting with the victims’ angle on December 12thAny profits generated that evening will be donated to local organizations who are working to prevent or support people who find themselves compromised or in vulnerable situations. 

This first dialogue will be facilitated by Erik Gingles, founder of BuzzLocal.tv, where it will also be live-streamed that day for those unable to attend in person. In order to be inclusive, Rotary Resurgo is soliciting help from corporate partners to be able to allow anyone to attend this dialogue regardless of their socio-economic backgrounds.

You can purchase a ticket for yourself, anyone else in your organization, or for someone else who may not have the means here: https://rotaryresurgometoomonctondialoguemoiaussimoncton.eventbrite.ca

Our panelists will be Tina Thébeau Thibodeau, Executive Director of Crossroads for Women Inc.; Kristal Dawn LeBlanc, Executive Director of Beausejour Family Crisis Resource Centre; Courtney Pringle-Carver, political candidate for Moncton Northwest; Tera Theriault-Hervet, MSW, RSW Clinical Social Worker; and Constable Sylvie Carriere, General Investigations Section, Codiac Regional RCMP.
