“Affordability has become more important than ever for entrepreneurs in BC. It is essential for party leaders to address small business concerns,” said Richard Truscott, Vice-President, BC and Alberta. “As 98 per cent of all businesses in BC are small and they are responsible for more than half of the private sector jobs, it is critical the political parties do what they can to allow small business to do what do best, which is growing the economy and creating jobs.”
CFIB is asking all party leaders to respond to the CFIB Party Leaders Survey by April 21st. Subsequently, the results will be publicly disclosed and directly communicated to CFIB members.
