At the top of the list of 10 ways Canada needs to become more competitive is Jobs, according to our Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
Tourism is an important industry in BC. Could Delta be doing more to promote tourism in this community? What advice and support programs are offered by the provincial government for tourism. What is being done outside the province and the country to promote tourism?
Why is Innovation so important to small and medium sized businesses? What is it? What is the full scope of innovation and how does the government encourage and support it? What can businesses do to develop and gain support for innovation through their strategy and operations?
