Toronto, September 29, 2016 – In a presentation made today at the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance, CFIB outlined how small business priorities can boost economic growth through Budget 2017.
“Small business owners play an important role in our economy and they hope that the second budget of the federal government will include measures to help them support Canada’s economic growth. Today, we presented several initiatives the government can adopt to help small businesses improve their capacity to create more jobs, grow and innovate,” said Monique Moreau, Director of National Affairs for the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.
CFIB members have identified the following priorities to help them grow Canada’s economy:
Creating the right fiscal conditions for investment and job creation
Optimizing labour market policies
Supporting the innovation agenda through “smarter” regulation
“We’re looking forward to collaborating with the government on policies to boost economic growth and promote investment in Canada’s vital small business sector: let’s hope the 2017 budget sets the foundation,” concluded Moreau.
