Small & Medium-sized Businesses

Our Position

Small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), or companies with fewer than 500 employees, employ more than 90 per cent of Canada’s private sector workforce, make up 30 per cent of Canada’s GDP, 25 per cent of our exports and account for 95 per cent of net job creation. SMEs are also a significant constituency in the Canadian Chamber of Commerce’s network. We are committed to advocating effective fiscal and economic policy measures to improve the business climate, ensure business certainty and create necessary conditions to enhance SME competitiveness.
