The 519 is on the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples. We acknowledge them and any other Nations who care for the land (acknowledged and unacknowledged, recorded and unrecorded) as the past, present and future caretakers of this land, traditional territory named Tkaronto, “Where The Trees Meet The Water”; “The Gathering Place”. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. We do not support colonial forces that undermine, distort or erase the vital role of Indigenous people in our world.

The Power of Connection

In spite of continuous economic uncertainty, LGBT+ business leaders are forging ahead. They continue to break new ground, expand their businesses, and strengthen our communities.
This year we celebrate and learn from Unstoppable LGBT+ Leaders as we continue to connect, support and grow Canada’s LGBT+ business community.
CGLCC’s LGBT+ Global Business Summit presents The Power of Connection – building on the premise that a strong and inclusive Canadian economy depends on the success of all Canadian entrepreneurs, small and medium-sized businesses.
This two-day event will help LGBT+ business owners, corporate leaders, professionals and young entrepreneurs better understand the forces and trends that affect businesses day to day.  It will identify and examine the opportunities available for businesses to meet the challenges ahead.
This year’s Summit brings together leaders and experts from government, corporations, entrepreneurship, academia, and global economic development. Through educational programming and networking, the Summit will strengthen the ecosystem that supports the advancement of economic and social development of LGBT+ entrepreneurs and the LGBT+ community at large, in Canada and globally.
