Manitoba’s next provincial election takes place on Tuesday, September 10th. Over the coming weeks, you will hear a lot of commitments from all parties about things like health care, education and infrastructure. But what about addressing small business priorities? We want small business issues to be front and centre in debates and in party platforms.
As a non-partisan organization, CFIB plans to meet with all of the province's political parties to present our Manitoba Election 2019: Small Business Platform and ensure that small businesses are the big focus of this election.
We are challenging all Manitoba party leaders to adopt policies that address challenges in four key areas by:
- Delivering needed tax relief;
- Spending like a small business;
- Reducing red tape; and
- Balancing labour laws and enhancing training programs.
We are also surveying all party leaders to find out where they stand on issues important to your business, and to ask for specific policy commitments. All responses will be posted unedited on our website, shared with all media outlets, and we will encourage all members to view the responses in preparation for Election Day on September 10th.
To learn more about these four key policies and the different initiatives CFIB is challenging political parties to adopt, visit our Manitoba Election 2019.
