Upcoming & Past Events

With Michael Wood

Over the past two years, Michael Wood has become a leader for small businesses throughout Ottawa, Ontario and Canada. He has met with countless elected officials to voice the concerns small business owners have dealt with throughout the pandemic.  These meetings have brought changes to government policies and support systems that continue to help business owners today. 

Below is a video of the former Ontario Minister of Small Business & Red Tape Reduction, Prabmeet Sarkaria (now President of the Ontario Treasury Board) stating during Question Period that it was because of meetings with Michael Wood and that the Ontario Government became involved in the first Federal commercial rent support program.

Michael was able to secure and hold meetings with countless Federal and Provincial officials as a private citizen and would invite hundreds of others to join him. Imagine what we could do for you as an elected official.
