Small Business, Too Big To Ignore


Small businesses are the backbone of the Ontario and Canadian economy. They are the wealth creators, job creators and risk takers. Small businesses of 100 or less employees constitute over 380,000 of Ontario businesses, employing nearly 3 million people.1 With over 40% of workers in Ontario employed by small business, these businesses provide the livelihoods and income for many people in our communities.


Small businesses have important relationships with big businesses as part of the economic ecosystem. Big businesses are highly dependent on small businesses as suppliers, distributors, customers, innovators, and for developing a skilled and experienced workforce to draw from. A strong and vibrant small business sector is important for big business.


Small businesses also constitute the vast majority of our local chamber members, our volunteers, and are often the people actively involved in community service. We engage and connect with them regularly – we hear their needs and challenges, encourage their success, and have an impact on their opinions and decisions. They are a powerful and significant business group that deserves to be heard and cannot be ignored.


By engaging these individuals in the Small Business: Too Big To Ignore campaign, we are providing them with much needed recognition, validation and a strong collective voice.
