Chamber Luncheon - Atlantic Canada is at a Critical Crossroads
Date: December 11, 2017 Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
The area’s metrics are going in the wrong direction. The region’s aging and declining population is about to leave a huge hole in the workforce, leaving local business scrambling to find workers to replace retirees and our economy stagnated. That’s bad news for small business owners and for Atlantic governments hungry for tax revenue to fuel their bottomless appetite. At the same time, provincial debt is growing, credit ratings are deteriorating, taxes are rising, and Atlantic government programs are being cut back. It is time to sound the alarm about this looming financial crisis.
Come hear Jordi Morgan, VP Atlantic, CFIB explain why Atlantic Canada finds itself at this crossroads and what measures need to be taken by Government and business stakeholders to avert this forecast decline.
