/R E P E A T -- CFIB statement on federal election/

TORONTO, Oct. 20, 2015 /CNW/ - The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) congratulates Prime Minister-designate Justin Trudeau and the new Liberal government on their election win, and offers its sincere appreciation to candidates from all parties across the country for an engaging and hard-fought election campaign.

We look forward to working with the new government and parliament to ensure the continued growth and stability of Canada's small- and medium-sized businesses, and the continued prosperity of communities across the country.‎

Small business' top priorities for the new government include delivering on the promise to reduce the small business corporate tax rate, controlling the overall payroll tax burden, improving access to skilled labour and better-recognizing the training needs of small business.

"We are eager to sit down with Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party and get to work on the issues that matter most to Canada's small businesses," said CFIB president Dan Kelly.

To arrange an interview with Dan Kelly, please contact Al Maggi at 416-222-8022 or public.affairs@cfib.ca.

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