Small Business Friendly Council Initiative
Small business owners and operators create local employment, provide essential goods and services and help create attractive, liveable communities.
The right mix of small businesses can create a sense of vibrancy and attract people to live, work and visit.
Councils can have a significant influence over how attractive their area is for businesses to set up, and established enterprises to grow. They also play a key role in the lifecycle of a small business.
Most of the interactions business owners have with government are at a local level. To help build stronger, more productive relationships between small business and Council, the Office of the Small Business Commissioner (OSBC) has developed the Small Business Friendly Council (SBFC) Initiative.
