Small businesses make up 98% of all businesses in B.C. and they have unique needs. Targeted infrastructure support can ensure that they have what they need to grow.

Investment in projects like coordinated regional marketing or downtown revitalization help to attract tourism, investment, and economic activity that benefit a whole region.  In remote communities, investment in basic infrastructure, such as internet connectivity, is vital for business and resident attraction.  Support for specific programs for entrepreneurs, such as succession planning, also help to address some of the key challenges facing this sector.
