Canadians Somewhat Optimistic About Starting New Businesses

The job outlook might not be the greatest--but 60% of Canadians still see opportunities for starting a business in the next 6 months. That's the highest rating in the G7, according to a new study.

Optimism is up compared to the last Global Entrepreneurship report in 2003, and the rate of female entrepreneurship in Canada is the highest in the G7 countries.

The same study found that first-generation immigrants in Canada are more likely to start their own business compared to the general population.
