Canadian Federation of Independent Business Owners and Mastercard Announce Agreement

Thursday, February 16, 2017   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Katie Beatty

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business Owners (CFIB) and Mastercard announced on Febuary 16, 2017 an agreement that recognizes the contribution and importance of small businesses to the Canadian economy and local communities. The partnership demonstrates the benefits of electronic payments in Canada while helping to reduce the cost of acceptance for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) who are members of the CFIB - Canada's largest organization representing SMEs.

 "This new agreement with Mastercard is a big deal for small business,” said Dan Kelly, President of CFIB. "It gives members access to transaction rates that reflect their combined sales of more than $3 billion, and lowers their cost of acceptance. This is a significant step forward in Canada’s payment industry and serves as an important sign of progress in the relationship between payment companies, like Mastercard, and smaller merchants,” Kelly concluded.
