Mary Ng, Canada’s Minister of Small Business and Export Promotion, has today announced the lunch of the launch of the new Canada Business App, that allows businesses to easily interact with federal government programs and services.
Minister Ng, who made the announcement in Markham, Ontario, in a meeting with small business owners and entrepreneurs, highlighted that small and medium-sized businesses are the backbone of our economy and that the government is working to make it easier for them to do business.
Currently, small and medium-sized businesses make up 99% of all Canadian businesses and employ 10 million hard-working Canadians from coast to coast to coast. Using the new Canada Business App, these businesses can not only navigate government services easily, but also receive tailored recommendations and notifications on funding applications.
“This is a small business-friendly government that is working hard to reduce red tape and make it easier for Canadian small business owners to start up, scale up, and access new markets. The Canada Business App is a fantastic tool that will help small business owners access the government programs and services they need simply and quickly. When small businesses in communities across the country succeed, our economy grows and middle-class jobs are created.” – The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business and Export Promotion
