Now that we are back in action after a much need Canada Day long weekend, we thought it would be great to kick off the month of our great country’s birthday by taking a look at the state of entrepreneurship in Canada.
We have some good news to report – Entrepreneurship is alive and well in Canada.
Canadians Are Entrepreneurial Minded
Entrepreneurship in Canada has never been stronger. According to research by the Centre for Innovation Studies, Canada is ranked second in the world in terms of entrepreneurial activity. This is great news for start-ups, small businesses and professionals considering going out on their own. There has never been more opportunity and resources to help you make it on your own.
Currently, about 13% of the working population are engaged in entrepreneurial activity, with only the United States ranking higher.
