Van Kesteren Hosting Small Business Forum April 11th
Chatham-Kent, ON—Dave Van Kesteren, MP, will be hosting a small business forum on April 11th with special guest speakers: Federal Minister of Small Business Maxime Bernier and National Post Columnist Rick Spence.

The event which is entitled “Global Trends and Opportunities for Chatham-Kent—Essex’s Economy,” is the first in an ongoing series dedicated to creating local economic opportunities.

“The April forum will focus on creating and sustaining small businesses as well as growing entrepreneurism,” said Van Kesteren. “Small businesses are important to Canada with 98% of businesses having less than 100 employees. I also know small businesses are constantly facing new challenges every day,” added Van Kesteren.

“That is why I’m committed to ensuring they have access to the best information and resources to help them prosper and provide jobs.”

The forum will run from 9:00am-11:00am on Wednesday April 11th at the Chatham Capitol Theatre. As space is limited, those interested are encouraged to call the Member of Parliament’s office or visit his website at
