Canada and 48 World Trade Organization [WTO] members on May 14 signed a joint statement committing to address the immediate economic challenges faced by small and medium-sized enterprises throughout this crisis and beyond.


“Coordinating with our international partners is critical to ensuring that Canadian businesses, whether small or medium-sized, have the tools, resources, and relief they need during this unprecedented time.” said Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade in the statement.


Small and medium-sized businesses make up 99% of all Canadian companies.

“Our government is unwavering in our support for Canadian businesses—of every size, every sector, and every region of the country.


“Canada and our international partners take gradual steps toward recovery, we will do everything we can to help them through this.”
