Small Business Chat with Rocco Rossi

Listen On

Recently, Rocco Rossi, President and CEO of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce released the following statement in response to the Ontario government’s decision to move to Step Two of the Reopening Roadmap on June 30.

“The facts are clear about Ontario’s reopening plan: we have achieved benchmarks for Step Three, yet we are taking a modest earlier move into Step 2. With nearly one-third of Ontarians fully vaccinated and our positivity rate dropping to the lowest since early Fall, we urge the government to closely monitor the indicators for reopening so we can confidently move to the next stage of a safe reopening of our economy sooner than anticipated. Continued supports, such as an additional round of the Ontario Small Business Support Grant, will be critical to help keep businesses afloat”

We recently had the chance to chat with Mr. Rossi, a  successful entrepreneur and business executive, champion fundraiser, and dedicated public servant. Rocco Rossi joined the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) in 2018 as President and CEO.

In this podcast, he discussed how the Ontario Chamber of Commerce is helping its business community during this challenging time and discussed his thoughts on Ontario Chambers of Commerce’s call for more support for small businesses as the province takes conservative steps towards reopening.
