Advisory Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ACSBE)

The Advisory Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ACSBE) is a private sector committee created to provide the government with advice on how to further improve business access to federal programs and information.

The ACSBE will build on the work of the former Advisory Committee of Paperwork Burden Reduction (ACPBR). The ACPBR was a public-private sector working group co-chaired by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) and Industry Canada. Its mandate concluded in 2009.

The ACSBE reports to the government through the Minister of State (Small Business and Tourism).
