Small Business

Small businesses are the backbone of our communities, accounting for 90 percent of all businesses. I am advocating for policy and legislation that would increase small business access to loans from credit unions, allow entrepreneurs to grow tax-free savings to fund their new small business, and support the creation of business incubators that can assist small businesses with training, counseling, investment management, and other important services. In addition, I will work to connect more West Vancouver and Sea to Sky businesses with new markets for their products through the Internet, introducing Broadband for Rural Opportunities to provide adequate resources to expand access to unserved rural areas. As well, as to make broadband funding programs more accessible and user-friendly, creating a one-stop-shop in the provincial government to acquire funding and resources to deliver high-speed Internet to businesses and families currently cut off from such service.
