small business is growing in Canada.
Small businesses are helped out in Canada by the government and the things such as small business tax breaks and credits. Owner of heavenly touch cleaning business Wanda Martin said “The amount of help i get from the tax breaks really helps with things like supplies and gas on our girls vechles, It actually makes a diffrence when it adds up” she also went on to talk about the help she got during startup. “The canada one program and just the help and availability to someone help get my company legitimized helped”.
Wanda owns a cleaning company in Pickering Ontario. She currently services 70+ clients and has been working this buisness for 4 years. When starting a buisness in canada there is also alot of rules and regulations that are in place. You have to go through things like registering your buisness name, setting up a payroll, applyling for W.S.I.B accounts. So there are alot of tips and tricks to be offered. Heres some that wanda had to offer when asked “The most important thing atleast for me was doing my research before finding out the right places and people to go throught. I think that is probably my best tip”.

When you consider how many businesses are in canada that really puts into prespective how heavy we run off of them. But with all the good there must be some challenges about running a small buisness.
