canada30-digital-media-2009Want to meet entre­pre­neurs and other cool peo­ple in your new Canadian com­mu­nity?

Meetup​.com is a good place to start. They’ve got entre­pre­neur groups in many major Canadian cities:

Vancouver Entrepreneurs Meetup Group

Greater Toronto Entrepreneurs Group

Montreal Entrepreneur​.ca Group

Calgary Entrepreneur & Business Professionals Group

Edmonton Entrepreneur Meetup Group

Do you work (or want to work) in Digital Media? Look at the Canadian Digital Media Network, based in Waterloo, Ontario, which co-​​hosts the annual Canada 3.0 Digital Media Conference. Also have a look at our recent post: Digital media peo­ple to watch in 2010.

Another option is to check out Green Drinks. While not specif­i­cally an entre­pre­neurs’ group, it’s a reg­u­lar gath­er­ing of peo­ple inter­ested in the envi­ron­ment, sus­tain­abil­ity, and other related issues, and their get-​​togethers attract many entre­pre­neur­ial types. They’re host­ing upcom­ing events in Vancouver (Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2010), Toronto (also Wednesday, Jan. 20), and Montreal (Tuesday, Jan. 26), among others.

Have you found a good net­work­ing group for entre­pre­neurs in Canada? Post a com­ment about it below. Thanks!
