ACT NOW! Support Small Businesses

Published on May 31, 2021

To join MPP Jessica Bell's phone zap in support of small businesses on Thursday, June 3 from 6-8 pm, send an email to [email protected].

Local Businesses are integral to our community. My office has been contacted by so many beloved local businesses facing difficult decisions because they cannot access financial support.

The Ontario Small Business Support Grant program has been notoriously difficult to access leading to unclear, uncommunicative, and frustrating application processes. My office surveyed over 150 businesses in our riding that applied for the OSBG and 85% of those businesses received no funding

These Businesses need help now. That’s why I support the Ontario NDP’s Reopen and Stay Open Provincial funding package. Join me in demanding:

  • A vastly improved third round of Ontario Small Business Support Grant
  • $1000 tourism and local restaurant tax credit 
  • Targeted re-opening support for personal care and service-industry businesses 
  • Access to forgivable loans

Fill out the form below and we’ll send a message to Premier Ford, Minister of Small Business and Red Tape Reduction Prabmeet Sarkaria and Minister of Finance Peter Bethlenfalvy.
