CFIB Calls On Federal Government To Use Budget 2022

Small business owners need the federal government to use Budget 2022 to lay a clear roadmap to small business recovery, says the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB). This includes keeping business costs down, reducing red tape, finding solutions to address the labour shortage, laying out a plan to address the deficit, and ensuring that COVID-19 measures address the needs of small businesses. More than nine in 10 (94 per cent) businesses say their costs have increased at a time when they can scarcely afford it and business owners have worked longer hours and taken on staggering debt loads to keep their businesses afloat, says CFIB.
