2021 Federal Pre-Budget Submission
Today, the Oakville Chamber with the Ontario Chamber Network provided recommendations to the federal government through its pre-budget submission. Consistent with our message to both the provincial and municipal governments, we encourage policy makers to focus on three areas of priority; resilience, growth, and modernization. The submission provides 20 recommendations which identify opportunities to ensure Ontario remains the economic engine of Canada and recovers from COVID-19.
We’re approaching the one-year anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ontario and many of our businesses are still struggling, with some unable to access government funding and support programs. To that end, as we enter a period of economic recovery, access to capital and continued support programs will be fundamental to the rebound of small businesses and entrepreneurship.
Oakville Chamber members have remained steadfast in their support of policy makers in the fight against COVID-19, and now we must lay the groundwork for support of our business community, renewal, and economic recovery.
