HARNESSING THE MOST POWERFUL DRIVER OF ECONOMIC GROWTH IN CANADA

The Family Enterprise Xchange Foundation (FEX-F) teamed up with the Conference Board of Canada to explore the impact of family-owned enterprises on the Canadian economic landscape, producing the most comprehensive picture of family enterprise in Canada to date.

FEX-F is proud to release our report based on this research, Family Enterprise Matters, confirming the significant impact family enterprises have on Canada's economy. From the corner coffee shop to the home builder and the local manufacturer, from the farmer and the fish processor to the commercial real estate developer – family enterprises generated almost half of Canada’s private sector GDP and almost seven million jobs in 2017 demonstrating that they are the most powerful driver of economic growth in Canada.

Despite the huge influence family-owned enterprises have on Canada's economy, knowledge gaps continue to exist. Improved data, informed public policies and better advisory services are needed to help family businesses reach their full economic potential, drive regional growth and lead Canada’s economy to a more prosperous future.
