  • Ontario has high scores on many of the entrepreneurship indicators captured in the GEM survey. Ontario has an exceptionally high level of early stage entrepreneurial activity (TEA), higher that the US and other G7 countries. Despite these particularly high early stage TEA rates, Ontario, like the rest of Canada does not have particularly high rates of established business (EB) ownership. Thus, Ontario has a particularly high rate of churn, i.e. of entrepreneurs starting and exiting companies. Ontario has a higher participation of early stage women entrepreneurs than the rest of Canada

  • Alberta continues to exceed TEA rates in comparison to all other innovation-driven economies within the GEM framework with its rate of 19.6%. However the province’s Established Business levels are slightly lower than other jurisdictions like the United States and Australia. The TEA necessity rate is higher than other jurisdictions within Canada, which is likely the effect of the deeper recession in Alberta.

  • In recent years, Canada has become increasingly recognized as a leader in women’s entrepreneurship. Alberta has played a central role in this phenomenon, with female activity rates well above the national average. The goal of the GEM Canada Report on Women’s Entrepreneurship in Alberta is to delve more deeply into this issue, and offer an up-to-date picture of women-led business in the province. The report uses additional questions targeted at women's motivation, current satisfaction and how they measure success.
