Business owners, whether operating in and around national and provincial parks, small towns or in Canada’s biggest cities must deal with a sea of regulations, legislation, permits, taxes, levies and fees. Everyday governments reach in and block, interfere, impose, tax and take. As a small business too, we know the feeling. We have also worked with dozens of business owners, usually through industry associations, to help them unravel the red tape that holds them back from succeeding. Helping business succeed is a labour of love for the New West Team.
