Small Business Week is a pan-Canadian forum for entrepreneurs to share their experiences and talk about solutions in dealing with economic uncertainty.

This year’s program aims to understand and tackle a major issue for Canadian entrepreneurs: labour scarcity.  BDC is releasing its third report on the issue, entitled The Challenge of a Decade: How to Navigate Canada’s Labour shortages. The study finds that the number of entrepreneurs having difficulties hiring and/or retaining employees has significantly increased since 2018: over 60% of entrepreneurs are having difficulties hiring compared to just over 40% five years ago. The study is based on feedback from entrepreneurs that have successfully navigated the labour crunch, and geared towards helping other small businesses make more informed decisions.
