Did you know that 2 out of 3 public companies in Canada are small or medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)? That's right -- going public is an important phase in the life cycle of companies that are still growing!
As they are the lifeblood of the Canadian economy, the government of Canada should do all it can to help Canadian SMEs grow. But important government supports exclude some growth companies simply because they are publicly-traded. This is not only anticompetitive, it hurts Canadian businesses, workers, and investors.
A level playing field for all Canadian growth companies is essential to the health of the Canadian economy. Using the hashtag #Fairness4Growth, join us in support of fair treatment for all Canadian growth companies.
