Small business owners in Saskatchewan appear to have had less optimism in July, according to the latest numbers from the Canadian Fenderation of Independent Business.
Saskatchewan Vice President Marilyn Braun-Pollon says Saskatchewan’s numbers are the lowest in the country.
She says insufficient domestic demand remains the main operating challenge for entrepreneurs in this province, adding the struggles on the farm are not helping.
“This drought we’re seeing in much of the province is also weighing heavy on their minds,” Braun-Pollon said. “Not only our ag members, but those businesses that rely on a healthy ag sector.”
Braun Pollon says because of the drop in optimism, areas like hiring could falter.
