  • Canada is very supportive of entrepreneurs. More than 50% of the population believe there is a good opportunity for entrepreneurship in the next 6 months, and almost 50% believe they have the skills and knowledge to start a business. About 10% of startups plan to have 20 or more employees within 5 years. In terms of activity, Canada has the highest TEA rate among the innovation driven economies. Just over 50% of startup activity is in consumer services.

  • Ontario enjoys one of the highest levels of positive attitudes reported towards entrepreneurship among the innovation-driven economies surveyed. For the first time, Ontario, together with Canada, shows the highest rate of total early-stage entrepreneurial activity (TEA), compared to developed countries in the reference group. In previous years, the US held first place. Ontario entrepreneurs show relatively modest job creation aspirations compared with reference countries. Most Ontario early-stage businesses are in consumer-oriented services, followed by business-oriented services, the transforming (manufacturing) sector and, with the lowest rate, the extractive sector (e.g. mining, agriculture). Ontario TEA ventures also use the very latest technologies at the highest rates (12%) and new technologies available in the last five years (21%), compared to the US and Australia. Canada (12.5%) is also comparable to Ontario. Ontario start-ups are also relatively export-oriented. They lead the reference group with 32.6% indicating having more than 25% of their revenues from outside the country.

  • This if the first GEM report on the four Atlantic provinces in Canada - New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The report found many differences among the four provinces, in such areas as availability of funding, availability of government assistance, the role of business incubators, and the adequacy of education for entrepreneurship. It also found similarities, such as the perception that new and growing firms can't afford new technology, the peak age for entrepreneurship being 25-34, and the predominant mode of entrepreneurship being opportunity based.
