- Rob Moore, Minister of State (Small Business and Tourism)
This initiative is imperative for the future development and relevance of programs, resources and legislation implemented by the Canadian government.
We encourage a new national standard to accurately identify and assess the various categories of independent business, including currently-used terms such as self-employed, micro, small, gazelles, medium, and high-growth.
The lack of national standardization has lead to great confusion, misrepresentation of issues and concerns, and ultimately development of programs and resources that have failed to support the intended recipients.
We, the undersigned, call on the government to help us, Canada's independent business owners, create a national standard to accurately identify and define the many categories of "small" business.
