Wednesday’s Throne Speech, delivered by Governor-General Michaelle Jean, outlined objectives for the Conservative government to achieve this year. Among these objectives was increased support for Canadian small business. According to an article in the Calgary Herald,
The government plans to boost employment with a focus on new education programs, skills training and new infrastructure that will support a public policy goal of increasing productivity and employment.
With this focus on education and training, it looks like 2010 could be the ideal time to start a small business!
Another commitment made was to “strengthen laws on copyright and intellectual property.” Many small businesses are started with a great idea, invention or product. So, all you inventors out there, why not see if your great idea can become a great business?
