Fall Economic Statement 2019
The Vaughan Chamber has long asked the Provincial Government to help reduce costs and reduce regulatory burdens for companies in Vaughan.
The Government listened to our call through multiple sections of the 2019 Fall Economic Statement, including:
Reducing Corporate Tax Rates from 3.5% to 3.2%
Removing WSIB premiums
Reducing Red-Tape for Business across multiple sectors
The Vaughan Chamber will continue to communicate with the Government to ensure there are no unnecessary barriers to business. To read the full 2019 Fall Economic Statement and see how it affects your business click here.
Launch of the Red-Tape Reduction Website
The Vaughan Chamber has consistently asked the Government to talk with industry to solve the problems of industry. The Provincial Government has announced the launch of a website that allows businesses to directly submit ideas and suggestions of ways to reduce red-tape. Part of the ‘Open for Business’ initiative, this new website offers an industry-centered approach, which allows companies to provide advice on how to make conducting business in Ontario easier.
