On July 14, Statistics Canada released the second wave of the Canadian Survey on Business Conditions (CSBC), with the support of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the CSBC is to measure the impact of COVID-19 on Canadian businesses, which in turn can inform decision making to mitigate the impact and improve responses.
CSBC data is available at the national, provincial and territorial levels, as well as by industrial sector, by employment size, by type of business, and by majority ownership. The survey was conducted from May 29 to July 3 with business owners from across Canada.
In collaboration with Deloitte Canada, the Canadian Chamber has now made available a deep dive into the data and what it reveals about the situation for Canadian businesses as they navigate the pandemic.
