Small businesses across Canada are partnering with Rogers to innovate and grow

October is Small Business Month in Canada, and Rogers is celebrating by highlighting small businesses and providing exclusive offers to support SMBs, who are the backbone of our economy across Canada.

According to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB), fewer customers and reduced spending are having a big impact on small businesses.  Only 30% of SMBs are reporting normal sales, as shared on the CFIN Small Business Recovery Dashboard, as of September 22, 2020.

Our contribution to the economy isn’t just about the numbers. It’s also shaped by how we’re helping small and medium businesses to innovate and grow in each of our communities. We want to leverage our diverse assets to create positive value for Canadian small businesses, from our tailored business solutions, to advertising and creative services.

Providing support for technology solutions will promote digital adoption among small businesses. And giving small business owners time back in their day will help them drive growth in their business and free them up to innovate.

Go Big for Small Business

Throughout the month of October, we’re continuing to support small businesses across the country. Join us and support Canadian SMBs, through Operation Support Local.

Rogers for Business recognizes that this time of uncertainty is changing how businesses operate. In collaboration with some of our amazing partners, we have great offers to help you work and collaborate from anywhere, so you can keep supporting your customers and employees.
