Onvia was founded in 1996 by 25-year old Canadian entrepreneur Glenn Ballman as a one-stop shop for small business owners, initially selling over 25,000 office supplies on its website, Onvia.com.

In August of 2000 the company was awarded "Hottest Startup in Canada" by the Toronto Board of Trade and Profit Magazine. In August 2000 Onvia acquired Globe-1, a business-to-government portal, turning the company's focus away from e-commerce to the government-bid space. Onvia then used its cash reserves to buy competitors, including DemandStar in March 2001.
