Nina Tangri, Associate Minister of Small Business and MPP Mississauga-Streetsville, for a discussion and tour of their co-working space at the Hazel McCallion Campus in Mississauga. Minister Tangri met with the EDGE team and a few founders to discuss the important work EDGE does to spark the creation of new small businesses, social enterprises and non-profits by supporting them with student talent and faculty.
