2023 Oxford Business Survey

After a four-year hiatus, I am once again reaching out to businesses across Oxford with my 2023 Oxford Business Survey to hear what is happening in the business community and how our government is performing.

Our local businesses are an integral part of the community and the backbone of our economy. I commend you for your dedication to Oxford and your commitment to making it a great place to live and grow.

That’s why our government is focused on reducing red tape to lower the regulatory burden and make conducting business easier in Ontario. Since we got elected, we’ve reduced Ontario’s total regulatory burden by over 6.5%, which has saved businesses and other organizations nearly $700 million each year in compliance costs.

We are also offering a preferential small business Corporate Income Tax (CIT) rate of 3.2% for eligible businesses and the Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER), which provides a reduction of 11.7% on hydro bills for eligible businesses.

Additionally, we introduced the Ontario Made Manufacturing Investment Tax Credit in our 2023 Budget to help Ontario manufacturers lower their costs, innovate, and become more competitive.

Again, I thank you for taking the time to share your concerns with me so I can bring them forward in the Legislature. I wish you all the best in your business endeavors and I’d be glad to assist you and your business in any way I can.

You can take the survey by clicking the button below, and I will be sending out the results later this year.
