Canadian Chamber - Vote Prosperity Platform for Federal Election

Canadian businesses are straining under the Seven Burdens of Business: a complex regulatory system; an out of date tax system; technology infrastructure that is failing to evolve with the times; a mismatch between the skills workers have and the skills businesses need; a lack of accessibility to tools needed for small-and medium –sized businesses to thrive; barriers to trade, both at home and abroad; and a potentially costly pharmacare system.   

The Canadian Chamber’s Vote Prosperity platform is challenging all party leaders to adopt and implement the 45 recommendations to the Seven Burdens of Business. It is what our 200,000 members and the millions of Canadians they employ will be voting for in the next election.

Canadian businesses, our nation’s job creators, are not asking for a handout, they just want a fighting chance to compete and grow. Canada’s businesses have every right to expect a level playing field with the counties they compete against and for their political leaders to deliver it.
