This is a LIVE event! We are offering an ONLINE TICKET for those who can't or don't feel comfortable attending live.  Please register for the online event here.

Vancouver's small and local businesses make our city great, and yet they sometimes have a tense relationship with the City's government. Commercial taxes, leasing, permit wait times, and zoning/licensing restrictions are just some of the issues that concern local businesses. At this event, we'll make sure that mayoral candidates hear about the issues directly from businesses like yours, and we'll hear how they plan to make changes to create a better environment to do business in the city.   

CTV Vancouver's Penny Daflos will join us as moderator for a panel with (invited):

Kennedy Stewart, Forward Together Candidate for Mayor (incumbent) - CONFIRMED
