CAFE CAFE Canada Zend_Feed_Writer 1.6.1 (http://framework.zend.com) http://www.cafecanada.ca/ CAFE supports proposed bill to correct tax system flaw affecting family business transfers Oakville, ON, June 11, 2015 - The Canadian Association of Family Enterprise (CAFE) lent it’s support to a new private member’s bill introduced in the House of Commons today by Emmanuel Dubourg, Liberal MP for Bourassa. Bill C-691, if passed, will change the Income Tax Act and lessen the tax burden imposed on business owners who transfer along their business to their children or grandchildren. Under the existing tax rules, business owners selling their business to family members pay more tax than if they were selling to a third party.

Canadian Family Business Leaders Assemble to Share Best Practices OAKVILLE, ON, May 5, 2015 /CNW/ - Leaders of family businesses from across Canada will converge in Toronto May 20-22, 2015 for the Family Business Symposium hosted by the Canadian Association of Family Enterprise (CAFE).  This year's event features educational workshops and keynote presentations from such prominent family business leaders as Rob Sobey of Sobeys/Empire Inc., Tim Hogarth of Pioneer Energy, Llewellyn Smith of E.D. Smiths & Sons, and Toronto's own Larry Rosen of Harry Rosen's. The conference's theme of 'helping business families succeed' is appropriate considering family business constitutes an estimated 80% of all businesses worldwide and 70-90% of global GDP. Baby-boomers are retiring in increasing numbers and many family businesses must deal with the transition of the family's business and wealth in coming years.
