CFIB Statement on Ontario Provincial Election

Toronto, June 8, 2018 – The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) congratulates Premier-designate Doug Ford and the incoming government on their election victory, and thanks all candidates who put their name on the ballot during an engaging election campaign.

We look forward to working with the new government on the issues that matter most to small business owners, including reining in the provincial debt, returning the budget to balance, and reducing energy costs.

We also thank Kathleen Wynne for serving as Premier for over five years. 

On behalf of our 42,000 business members in Ontario, we look forward to working with all newly-elected and re-elected MPPs to promote the growth and support of small- and medium-sized businesses in all sectors across Ontario. 

-Plamen Petkov, CFIB Vice-President, Ontario
