TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2014 /CNW/ - The Ontario Convenience Store Association (OCSA) is pleased to voice its support for Bill 7, the Better Business Climate Act, which was passed by the Ontario Government today.
Bill 7, The Better Business Climate Act, will require the Government to issue an Annual Report detailing the actions taken by the Government of Ontario to lower regulatory burdens.
"Ontario's convenience store businesses are pleased to see the government's commitment to carefully monitoring the regulatory burden on small business," said Dave Bryans, President and CEO of the Ontario Convenience Store Association. "Unnecessary red tape and regulation is a problem for many small businesses and Bill 7's focus to lower regulatory burdens will make it easier for small business members to grow and succeed."
Ontario Convenience Stores Association members are responsible community retailers. Convenience stores are entrusted to sell more age restricted products than any other retailer - and do an excellent job of it. Member companies continually train employees and test for compliance in order to ensure that products are sold with the utmost care and responsibility.
The Ontario Convenience Stores Association (OCSA) represents convenience stores throughout the province that are committed to Responsible Community Retailing. The convenience store industry represents $13 billion in sales annually in Ontario and employs over 69,000 people. More than 3 million people visit convenience stores in communities across Ontario every day.
