A Path Forward for Entrepreneurship in Canada - Interview with Richard Payette, CEO Americas for BDO International

May 21, 2014

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce is the primary connection between business and the federal government. As Canada’s largest and most influential business association, it is committed to identifying and understanding the challenges, obstacles and opportunities that entrepreneurs face today. This includes how the government can be seen and used as a resource for emerging businesses.
