Survey on Financing and Growth of Small and Medium Enterprises

The Survey on Financing and Growth of Small and Medium Enterprises, was designed to determine the types of financing that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are using, and to collect information on recent attempts by those SMEs to obtain new financing. In addition, the survey gathers information on firm growth, engagement in international business activities, innovation and intellectual property, as well as owner characteristics. The questionnaire was adapted from the Survey on Financing of Small and Medium Enterprises conducted by Statistics Canada in 2000, 2001, 2004 and 2007, and the Credit Conditions Survey conducted by Leger Marketing.
