Small Business Month in BC

This past week I had the opportunity to attend the launch of ‘Small Business Month’ at a lunch sponsored by CGA BC. The Minister for ‘the State of Small Business’, the Honourable Naomi Yamamoto, explained to the group how the ‘Small Business Roundtable’ is making a difference.

Established in 2005, the Small Business Roundtable’s on going mandate is to serve the best interests of small businesses in BC. It is made up of 19 representatives from across the Province who are recognized leaders within the small business community. The recommendations put forth to government are a result of listening to challenges experienced by the small business owner.

One of the main challenges they are trying to address is the amount of red tape small business owners face when dealing with the government. I believe any improvement on these barriers would be very beneficial.

The latest report from the Roundtable can be found here: http://www.smallbusinessroundtable.ca/AnnualReports/Documents/2012%20Annual%20Report.pdf
