  • 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.
