Micro-Enterprises Survey, 2000—A Progress Report

Industry Canada's Small Business Policy Branch (SBPB), in cooperation with the Small Business and Special Surveys Division (SBSSD) of Statistics Canada, designed a questionnaire and implemented a survey of micro-enterprises. The objective of the survey was to establish a baseline understanding of factors affecting micro-enterprise growth by profiling both the owners' and the firms' characteristics. In due course, on-going policy research focusing on micro-enterprises will enable SBPB to develop appropriate and effective policy responses that are likely to improve the capacity of micro-enterprises to grow and to create sustainable jobs in the global knowledge economy. This paper presents background on the data collection and coverage of the Micro-Enterprises Survey 2000 and it highlights key results.
