Training is an essential tool for Canada’s small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The vast majority of Canada’s smallest businesses train their employees by investing $31,238 on average each year. That’s $1,907 per employee!
The federal and provincial governments must do more to encourage training and recognize the time, money and effort already spent by small businesses to make Canada’s labour force the best in the world.
Canada’s Municipal Spending Watch provides a snapshot of extravagance at municipalities across the country. The report pegs the total cost of municipal overspending nationwide at over $7,800 per household over 12 years.
