On March 28, 2022, please join PAAC Ontario for a Members-Only event: a fireside chat with the Hon. Nina Tangri, Associate Minister of Small Business and Red Tape Reduction.

Minister Tangri’s focus on reducing red tape and supporting Ontario’s small businesses during the pandemic has been a key focus of the government throughout their mandate. Since her appointment in June 2021, Minister Tangri has engaged with industry associations, entrepreneurs, and stakeholders to grow the province’s competitive advantage when it comes to business creation and growth.

With the recent passing of the Fewer Fees, Better Services Act, 2022, PAAC is excited to hear about how this important work will impact Ontarians and small business owners moving forward.

PAAC Members will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the panel.

We encourage members to register early for this event.
