Small businesses are the core of our economy. Over 388,000 small businesses are responsible for a third of British Columbia’s GDP, and jobs for over one million people.

In five years, your government has made it easier and less expensive for small business to interact with government, established the Small Business Venture Tax Credit, and continued to reduce unnecessary red tape – which the Canadian Federation of Independent Business recognized again this year as leading the country.

For five years, the BC Jobs Plan has supported BC’s private sector to grow and flourish on the global stage. That creates jobs. Your government will continue that work through the next chapter of the Plan.
