As Vice-Chair of BC’s Small Business Roundtable, I would like to invite the entire small business community in BC to offer their feedback on what will help their business be more successful.
Naomi Yamamoto, our new Minister of State for Small Business has announced today the launch of The Small Business Accord initiative. The ultimate goal is to gather information from all of you so that we can provide guidance to government to ensure that proper tools, support and regulations are developed to make BC one of the most business-friendly jurisdictions in the country.
Here are ways to engage:
1. Online survey at http://www.bcjobsplan.ca/bc-small-business-accord-survey/. This survey provides small businesses throughout the province an opportunity to provide feedback to help government develop key guiding principles that should be included in the Small Business Accord.
2. Minister Bill Bennett will be hosting a Twitter Town Hall October 23rd from 3:30-4:30pm under the hashtag #BCBizChat. His chat will focus on local government and supports for businesses. More information is available at http://www.bcjobsplan.ca/bcbizchat-business-in-bc/
3. Minister Yamamoto will also be engaging in a Twitter Town Hall on October 30th from 7:30-8:30pm. Please promote #BCBizChat.
