Most Small Business Owners In Province Are Satisfied With State Of Business

Confidence among small business people in the province remains steady and is almost on par with the rest of the country. That word coming from the latest survey from the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.

Richard Dunn is a policy analyst with the C-F-I-B in New Brunswick who tells CHSJ News the small business confidence barometer in the province is just under the national rate of 61.7. Ideally, it should be above 65 for growth.

Dunn says only 14 per cent of small businesspeople in the province say things are bad with 86 per cent of respondents characterising the state of business as either good or satisfactory.
