Feedback will help shape the Small Business Success Strategy.

TORONTO — The Ontario government is launching a province-wide consultation to determine how it can help small businesses grow. Consultations will help provide the foundation for the development of its Small Business Success Strategy.

The announcement occurred following a roundtable held in Toronto with 25 female entrepreneurs to highlight the fact that only 17% of small- and medium-sized businesses are owned or led by women in Ontario.

Consultations will focus on five issues:

  • Lowering costs
  • Increasing exports
  • New technologies
  • Talent development
  • Succession planning and supporting entrepreneurship

A series of province-wide small business roundtables will be held and but businesses can provide input in an online survey or email a submission by Sept. 1.
