The YR Innovation Portal is the official online hub of York Region’s innovation and startup ecosystem. It’s where you can find jobs, learn about events and read exciting news from across York Region. Over the coming months, the YR Innovation Portal will be moving over to York Link – the official home of York Region Economic Development. Once the transition is complete, when you visit yrinnovation.ca you will automatically be redirected to York Link. You will still be able to access the same great resources you’ve come to expect from the YR Innovation Portal, including startup support programs, jobs, news, the latest events and much more.
This change is part of a broader initiative by York Region Economic Development to consolidate information and make it easier to find the resources businesses are looking for. ventureLAB and York Region have worked to ensure that the YR Portal is more accessible, keeping your best interest as business top of mind. Rather than visiting multiple websites, you can find everything you need in one convenient location –including information on industry sectors, small business support through the York Small business Enterprise Centre, the latest economic data and much more.
We will continue to communicate these changes and future updates regularly through social media, our website and through our newsletter. Still have questions? Contact York Region Economic Development at firstname.lastname@example.org.
