Media Advisory - CFIB giving small biz perspective on Budget 2017 to Finance Committee

National Affairs Director presents pre-budget submission today in Ottawa

TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) Director of National Affairs Monique Moreau will appear at the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance on September 29 to outline how small business priorities can boost economic growth through Budget 2017.

Moreau will share how CFIB can collaborate on policies that support job creation and economic growth in Canada. For example, the government can help small businesses improve their capacity to grow and innovate through measures such as corporate tax relief and introducing a credit for small firms who pay into the Employment Insurance program.

Her testimony is scheduled to begin at 3:30pm in Centre Block, Room 237-C, and Moreau will be available for media interviews on-site and by telephone immediately following her submission.

CFIB is Canada's largest association of small- and medium-sized businesses with 109,000 members across every sector and region.
