    Description:

    The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many different communities in Canada, including visible minorities. This article presents results from the Canadian Survey on Business Conditions which show that businesses majority-owned by visible minorities expect lower profits, and are more likely to expect to face obstacles obtaining financing. Their financial constraints do not differ greatly from all private sector businesses, and over one-tenth of businesses majority-owned by visible minorities can continue to operate for less than 12 months. This article further explores the obstacles these businesses expect to face and their expectations for the future.

    This study analyzes the determinants of entry into business ownership (defined as ownership of private incorporated businesses). Entrants into business ownership are defined as individuals who were primarily business owners in 2016, but not in 2015. An individual can become an entrant by starting an enterprise or acquiring shares of an existing private enterprise. Using a matched employer–employee database over the 2011-to-2016 period for approximately 24 million individuals, this study assesses the role of factors including personal characteristics, labour market experience and family characteristics.

    Different communities in Canada have been impacted in various ways by the COVID-19 pandemic. Using the data from the Canadian Survey on Business Conditions, a comparison was made to assess the impact of COVID-19 on businesses majority-owned by visible minorities. Differences were noted in certain areas: these businesses were more likely to experience a decrease in revenue, have less liquidity, be unable to take on more debt, and be approved for funding or credit. This article further explores the impacts these businesses are experiencing during these unprecedented times.

    The main objective of this paper is to determine whether the immigration status of the owner of a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) affects the likelihood of a company implementing an innovation. This paper uses data from a survey of Canadian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in 2011, 2014 and 2017, and asks whether immigrant-owned SMEs were more likely to innovate during the three years prior to the survey than those owned by Canadian-born individuals.
