Addressing fundamental small business priorities in the 2017-18 budget

In order to provide the Government of Nova Scotia with our members’ top priorities for the upcoming budget, we conducted the Nova Scotia 2017 Pre-budget Survey between October 6 and October 20, 2016.

The results were clear.

Small business owners across Nova Scotia want government to do its part in creating a foundation for small business success.

This involves government focusing on the basics of what’s needed to create small business-friendly environment including:

  • Reducing the total tax burden,
  • Cutting red tape,
  • Addressing government spending, and
  • Supporting small business innovation.

Action is urgently needed in these areas to encourage existing small businesses to grow and entice new entrepreneurs to start-up in Nova Scotia. The future prosperity of our economy depends on it. 

We invite you to read CFIB’s complete Nova Scotia pre-budget submission, Back to Business: Addressing fundamental small business priorities in the 2017-18 Nova Scotia Budget.
