Finance Canada is proposing the most radical tax overhaul in 50 years.
These proposed changes will have impact on all incorporated businesses in all sectors of the economy from retailers to restauranteurs to farmers and consultants.
We are concerned that these changes will stall business growth in Canada and punish legitimate businesses.
Over the next few weeks, MPs will be attending caucus meetings and we want to send our MPs to those meetings with a number of stories about the impact the proposed changes will have on businesses in our community.
We are asking for your help:
Write a letter to your MP:
Maryam Monsef, Minister of Status of Women, Peterborough-Kawartha (LIB)
Kim Rudd, Northumberland-Peterborough South (LIB)
Jamie Schmale, Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock (CONS)
We urge the government to put these changes on hold to avoid hurting thousands of small businesses across the country and to have a broader, more thoughtful discussion regarding the measures needed to stop those who use their businesses to avoid paying taxes.
The Peterborough and the Kawarthas Chamber of Commerce acts as a catalyst to enhance business growth, opportunity, innovation, partnerships and a diverse business community.
