CFIB and Intuit QuickBooks Canada join forces to help small businesses better manage their finances

Toronto, November 20, 2019 – The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) and Intuit QuickBooks Canada have announced today the formation of a new alliance, which will enable CFIB members to access QuickBooks’ suite of online financial tracking tools at discounted rates. The relationship aims to provide Canadian small businesses with greater ability to take control of and manage their finances. 

This follows research released from Intuit QuickBooks Canada that shows nearly two in three (64 per cent) Canadian small businesses have experienced cash flow issues in the past, with small business owners missing out on an average of $28,885 by forgoing projects or sales because of cash flow uncertainty. 

“Our members have asked us to provide them with a solution to their everyday accounting needs,” said CFIB president Dan Kelly. “Teaming up with QuickBooks will help enable CFIB members to take better control of their finances with a comprehensive, cloud-based solution at a very competitive price.”

QuickBooks is an all-in-one, cloud-based accounting software that provides small businesses and self-employed individuals with a suite of financial tracking tools that provide them with the latest information on their finances, in real-time, wherever they need it. 

“Small businesses power the Canadian economy and it remains vital to their success that we work with industry partners to champion those small business owners who dare to dream, giving them access to the tools and support they need, when they need it,” said Elaine Briere, Director of Partnerships, Intuit Canada. “We’re looking forward to working with CFIB to help power the prosperity of small businesses across Canada.”
