In January, the Chamber presented five recommendations for the provincial government to consider during their budget development process. The recommendations are designed to help to encourage economic growth through a competitive business environment and include a reduction to the provincial small business tax to be the lowest in the region; a fair system for carbon pricing; tying minimum wage increases to CPI; an increase to the basic personal tax exemption. The information presented was based on the collective feedback of the Chamber Membership, Board of Directors and Policy Committee.
