Every member of CFIB has the opportunity to shape CFIB’s policy positions through the survey process. The “Our Members’ Opinion” survey is conducted face-to face with small business owners across Canada. This survey focuses on issues affecting small businesses. Questions are modified every six months except for “the most important issue”, which remains constant in every survey. Some recent surveys have included questions on local government, business succession, hiring and retaining employees.
