Majority female-owned small and medium-sized Enterprises (Key small business statistics)
Business statistics segmented by gender provide a unique perspective on the attributes of the population of small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) owners. This special edition of Key Small Business Statistics aims to provide readers with a picture of the general distribution of majority female-owned SMEs in Canada.
Through the use of tables and charts, the report compares and contrasts the distribution of majority female-owned SMEs with that of majority male-owned SMEs and with that of SMEs owned equally by males and females. The report also describes differences among these populations of SMEs in terms of owners’ managerial experience, owners’ educational attainment and owners’ access to financing.
