The Haliburton and Ontario Chamber of Commerce have partnered together for a six-month campaign.

The organizations say it will highlight the important contributions of small businesses to communities, and investigate the top barriers to small business growth.

Local chambers and boards of trade will hold consultations with small business owners through the province to identify the barriers they face during the next six months.

Meanwhile, Haliburton’s chamber will reach out to its members to hear their input.

President and CEO of the OCC Allan O’Dette says he’s looking forward to the feedback.
