There is $520 billion dollars of major projects “on the books” in Canada and maybe twice that much off the books! A wave of new economic activity everyone should know about!
Although we call them “Major Crown Projects”, (MCP’s), and measured in the millions and billions of dollars these projects all over Canada have a positive impact on small business.
There was a small corner store in northern Ontario who had benefited a great deal from an MCP. Now it is a thriving business with thousands of square feet of retail space. What do they owe its growth and success to? Sandwiches! Every day for three years it sold sandwiches to hundreds of employees on their way to the job site. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you cannot benefit from these large projects.
The Federal government is trying to narrow the Indigenous community infrastructure gap that exists because of decades of neglect. Hundreds of millions of dollars of economic activity is happening across the country in communities that are in close proximity to your business.
ITFC has taken steps to allow our members to initiate contact with representatives within these communities. The “connect functionality” of the ITFC platform provides an effective alternative to the cost of attending conferences where the goal is to identify potential partners and economic opportunities.
All part of your ITFC membership!
