Business performance and ownership
Study: Unincorporated self-employment in Canada, 1989 to 2010
Canadians aged 55 to 64 are almost twice as likely as their 25-to-44-year-old counterparts to work in unincorporated self-employment. A new study looking at the period from 1989 to 2010 found that 1 in 10 Canadian workers—more than 1.7 million people on average—over this period received their primary source of income from employment from an unincorporated business.
Canada's international trade in services, 2014
The deficit on international transactions in services edged up $0.2 billion to $23.4 billion in 2014. This change mainly reflected a higher deficit in the transportation account and, to a lesser extent, the travel account. On a geographical basis, the deficit with non-US countries widened, led by European and Asian countries, while the deficit with the United States narrowed.
