About PGIB

"Less Government Equals Lower Taxes"

The PGIB is Canada's fastest growing small business and taxpayer organization.  Founded in 1992, the PGIB has been a strong advocate for less government, lower taxes and political accountability at all levels of government. 

The average Canadian business pays far too many different Municipal, Provincial and Federal Government taxes.  PGIB feels that a dollar left in the hands of a taxpayer is more productive than that same dollar left in the hands of the government.  Government should regard public money as funds held in trust.  Governments should practice fiscal responsibility, beginning with a balanced budget. 

"In Canada, new groups including the Progressive Group for Independent Business...have formed specifically to protest government policies and the impact of their budgets is politically direct - not politically correct. "

Our Business Clubs offer you revolutionary networking methods and events that will increase your business.  Your "VIP" membership  card entitles you to numerous discounts across the country through our Member Discount Directory.  Also, as a corporate member, you will enjoy the loyalty of our extensive membership that will ensure continued patronage of your services. 

We welcome small "c" conservatives to join our ever-expanding ranks through our offices in Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto and head office in Calgary, as well as a growing number of offices across Canada. 

We are confident that your membership in the PGIB will not only be prosperous, but also rewarding in the knowledge that you are contributing to a better Canada.
