In the past few years there has been a constant rhetoric of entrepreneurship in the Canadian media. As many larger businesses suffered a downturn in the recession and its aftermath, many people turned to smaller businesses to continue to economic drive. But this respect for entrepreneurship is not new within Canada, or North America. The entire “American Dream” is based on people being able to draw themselves up by their shoestrings and become successful through entrepreneurship. As our economy continues to develop and change to being a tertiary economy, entrepreneurship will continue to prosper to help facilitate that change. How does this compare to the other countries rapidly moving towards a tertiary economy? Where does Canada stand in entrepreneurship? How can we use this data to continue aiding entrepreneurship in Canada?
