Support for Small Business

Mayor’s small-business review

I am working to review all city policies that impact small business, including taxation and permitting to help support and grow our neighbourhood-based economy.

New affordable neighbourhood commercial spaces

I will expand small-scale neighbourhood retail opportunities like corner stores, small cafes and laneway-based businesses to make neighbourhoods more vibrant, walkable, and complete.

Laneway retail spaces would also be live/work, and protected from the volatility of triple-net leases and property tax costs giving new entrepreneurs an affordable and low-risk way to start their first business.

A new affordable start-up hub

To help support Vancouver’s rapidly growing tech-sector, I will create an affordable start-up hub, purpose built for new tech start-ups.

Removing barriers and reducing costs helps new ideas flourish in an industry that creates the jobs of the future.
