It goes to show that even though our Chamber is comprised of mostly small businesses (84% of our members have 25 or fewer employees) our voice is in harmony with the majority of businesses across the country. Our opinions and concerns matter.

Every other week, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce releases 5 Minutes for Business, a publication written by Hendrik Brakel, their Senior Director of Economic, Financial and Tax Policy. In these publications, Hendrik briefly describes current issues that affect the Canadian economy and provides insight on what it will mean for Canadians today and the future. In this week’s edition, he examines what’s driving income inequality in Canada and what can be done.
