Saskatchewan's provincial election took place on October 26th.
The Saskatchewan Party was re-elected on October 26th. Before the election, CFIB sent out the 2020 Leaders' Survey on Small Business Priorities to all Party Leaders to find out where they stand on issues important to your business including taxation, spending, red tape, employment and training.
In particular, CFIB is pleased the Saskatchewan Party and Premier Moe committed to:
Temporarily reduce the small business corporate income tax rate from two per cent to zero, beginning Oct 1, 2020;
Reduce SaskPower bills by 10 per cent for one year for all SaskPower customers;
Balance the budget by 2024 – without tax increases or reductions in programs and services;
Continue expanding reliable connectivity across Saskatchewan; and
Continue reducing red tape across all sectors wherever possible.
