Ontario Chamber launches social media campaign

Ontario Chamber launches social media campaign

ONTARIO - The Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) has teamed up with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) for the 2018 “Small Business Too Big To Ignore campaign” to raise awareness of the important contributions of small businesses to local communities across the province and the economy. In addition to the social media campaign, the Ontario chamber has released statistics about the impact small businesses have on the province.

Ontario chamber facts

There are over 400,000 small businesses in Ontario, providing important jobs and livelihoods for many Ontarians.

Small businesses make up 98% of all Ontario businesses and 30% of Ontario’s provincial GDP

Small businesses employ over 3,000,000 Ontarians and two-thirds of all private sector workers in Ontario

Small businesses constitute the vast majority of the OCC’s local chamber members, volunteers, and are often the people actively involved in community service. Officials say small businesses are “the backbone of our economy and the heart of our local communities. They are simply too big to ignore.”
