Starting a small business is no easy feat. However, if there’s an idea you can’t get off your mind, now is a great opportunity to bring it to life! It’s a great time for Canadian women, in particular, to take advantage of their country’s thriving entrepreneurial landscape.
Small businesses make up almost all of Canada’s businesses, contributing significantly to Canada’s GDP. Not to mention, Canadian e-commerce is booming, too. With so many digital resources available to burgeoning small business owners, as well as online customers ready to try out new brands, there is plenty of potential for aspiring entrepreneurs to jump at. Despite all that opportunity, research shows Canadian women are more hesitant to start a business compared to Canadian men — an unfortunate fact that should and can change. But when more women join the entrepreneurial ranks, forecasts show the entire Canadian economy stands to benefit.
