On March 8, 2017, Alice Wong made a statement in the House of Commons on the topic of Women in Small Business.
The following is a transcript:
Hon. Alice Wong (Richmond Centre, CPC):
Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to rise on this day, International Women’s Day, to highlight women in small businesses. In Canada, 47% of small and medium-sized enterprises are wholly or partly owned by women. As a former small business owner myself, I understand that running a business requires dedication, hard work, and finding the right balance between business and family.
We must continue to encourage and empower women of all ages to accomplish their goals. We also need to ensure that the right tools, mentorship, and opportunities are provided to guarantee the success of our small businesses.
I hope this day reminds us that every day women in Canada and around the world greatly impact our economies and communities for the better. We must ensure that all women have a chance to pursue their dreams.
