More Important than was Thought: A Profile of Canadian Small Business Exporters

Small businesses are an important engine of growth in the domestic economy. Given the important role of exports in the Canadian economy, it is important to understand the relative contribution of small business to exports. New enhancements to the Exporter Registry have made data available on exports by size of firm. This paper takes advantage of this data to construct a profile of small business exporters that establishes new baseline information and provides a basis for the development of policy to better foster small business exports.
