VICTORIA – The HST Information Office recently launched www.hstinbc.ca , a new website designed to put more factual information on the HST in the hands of British Columbians.

Public opinion research released in December showed that there is confusion about the HST’s implications, and that a majority of British Columbians are interested in reviewing straightforward and factual information about the HST.

The new website was created from a user perspective, based on a review of user surveys, site analytics and polling research. The site has an improved navigation system, so users can find facts and information faster.

With a simple URL – www.hstinbc.ca – web users now have access to HSTinformation from a consumer, family-budget, and small- or large-business perspective.

The redesigned website seeks to ensure web users have reliable, factual information so they can eventually make an informed decision on whether to keep the HST or return to the PST/GST.

The site will be updated over the coming weeks and months with new information and more features, making it an important source of information on the HST and the upcoming public vote.
