The Canadian Youth Business Foundation


Canada’s Entrepreneur Gateway


The Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF) is the ‘go to’ place for youth entrepreneurship. As a national organization, we are dedicated to growing Canada’s economy one young entrepreneur at a time. We look at character not collateral, when providing youth, age 18-39, with pre-launch coaching, business resources, start-up financing and mentoring, to help them launch and sustain a successful entrepreneurial business. CYBF is the founder of G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit (G20 YES) and a founding member of the G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance (G20 YEA).


Established in 1996, CYBF has invested to date in more than 5,260 young entrepreneurs, whose businesses have created more than 20,800 new jobs, $147.4 million in tax revenue and hundreds of millions of dollars in sales and export revenue. CYBF delivers its program coast to coast to coast through a national network of 184 community partners and more than 4,220 volunteers including business mentors.
