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.
