BDC's Small Business Week (SBW) is October 15-21 this year, a time for Canadians to celebrate entrepreneurship. During SBW, we recognize the key role small businesses play in our local and national economy and acknowledge that small businesses improve our community's access to goods and services, provide local jobs, keep money in the local economy, and support many community projects.
SBW also provides small business owners with an opportunity to learn from each other's successes and address common challenges. This year, BDC is focusing on continued labour shorages and retention difficulties facing all businesses.
You can download their recent report, "The Challenge of a Decade: How to Navigate Canada's Labour shortages from the BDC website and learn about other business events being hosted this week.
We hope that the information and resources we share in this edition are helpful!
