Check out Louise’s post Not so small business (Oct 4 2013) on small business and it’s importance nationally and here in town as well.
October is small business month. Ironically, small business isn’t small at all. In fact, it’s the biggest business we have. According to Industry Canada, there are 1.1 million small businesses in Canada and 55% of those employ 1 to 4 people. Small businesses employ 69.7 percent of the private labour force and create the most new jobs.
