Celebrating Canada Small Business Week
As we begin to recover from the pandemic, it is more important than ever to support small businesses in our communities. From October 16-22, join us as we celebrate Canada Small Business Week and the hard work and dedication of Canadian small business owners.
At ApprenticeSearch.com, we have the privilege of working with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the skilled trades, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their hard work throughout the pandemic and for the contributions they continue to make to not only the local economy but to our communities.
Small businesses in the skilled trades play an important role in our society; they provide essential services that keep our homes and businesses running smoothly and safely. Additionally, SMEs in the skilled trades create meaningful and rewarding jobs and generate revenue that supports families and the growth of local communities.
For that, we are very proud to be part of the Canadian Apprenticeship Service, providing financial incentives for SMES who are hiring and training Level 1 apprentices across the country.
Small businesses are the backbone of the Canadian economy, so it's fitting and very much deserving that we dedicate a whole week to celebrate the SMEs in our communities. Join us as we show our support for Canadian small businesses - not only this week, but every week!
