Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party of Canada recently tabled her latest Private Member’s Bill, the Creation of the Small Business Impact Assessment Act, as part of the Green Party’s plan to support Canadian small businesses.
“Employing more than 60 percent of Canadians, small businesses are vital to the Canadian economy,” Ms. May said. “Small and medium sized enterprises are the real job creators. Supporting small business builds a whole value chain strengthening Canada’s economy.”
Elizabeth May continued, “My bill would ensure that the federal government supports and promotes small businesses by establishing a mandatory review process to consider the impacts of legislation on small businesses.”
Elizabeth May’s bill would amend the Department of Industry Act to establish a mandatory review of the potential impact any proposed government bill or regulation would have on small businesses.
Sign on to show your support for Elizabeth May’s “Think Small First” legislation, which will create a Canadian economy where sustainable small businesses can not only compete, but thrive.
