SUBJECT: 2020 Ontario Economic Report and Inaugural Small Business Friendliness Indicator
Dear MPP Clark
On February 26, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) and the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce released our fourth annual Ontario Economic Report (OER).
The Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce is a proud member of the OCC and we are pleased to present you with this landmark document which will lead the dialogue on business and the Ontario economy as well as inform important public policy decisions for a stronger province.
As the Ontario Chamber of Commerce’s flagship report, the OER provides key insights into the province’s diverse business community with the goal of informing future public policy to create a more competitive and prosperous Ontario. The research contained with the OER highlights the year ahead and year that was, offering a unique lens on the economy.
This year, we have gauged the temperature of business through the Business Confidence Survey (BCS), benchmarked small business competitiveness with the Small Business Friendliness Indicator (SBFI), and examined regional growth projections in the Economic Outlook.
This report provides a snapshot of key issues to Ontario and Brockville and area business communities and looks ahead to how we can move forward to ensure collective business prosperity.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. We would be happy to meet with you to discuss this document at anytime.
Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce
