As COVID-19 continues to shut the doors of Canadian Small Businesses, the impact on the Canadian economy will be far-reaching if we fail to act and support this cause. Small businesses in Canada make up more than 97% of all Canadian companies and are the backbone of employment, job creation, innovation and opportunity.
On the impact this worldwide pandemic has on Canadian small business, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) made the following statement:
“March 2020 has turned out to be a month like no other in Canada’s economic history. Small business sentiment has never been this low in the Business Barometer’s 32-year history, including during the 2008 and 1990 recessions”
No doubt the Canadian economy will experience a massive hit. We will recover. How long that will take depends on how we come together, collaborate and face the challenges that lie ahead. Moving forward will require the coming together of ideation, direction, investment of time, capital and sweat equity. We believe, “Together, Moving Forward”.
Since our launch just over two years ago, CanadianSME remains committed to the vibrancy and success of small and medium-sized businesses. We will continue to gather bright minds and to partner with industry leaders and government officials to roll out resources and content that will directly lead to prosperity for all. We strongly believe when Canadian SMEs succeed, Canada succeeds.
