British Columbia Has Greatest Startup Activity

Photo Credit: Caillum Smith A new report by the CIBC suggests that the next decade might see the largest amount of Canadian startup activity on record. Currently, British Columbia is leading the pack with 3.7% of the working population employed at a company that has been operating for 2 years or less.

CIBC reports that factors such as technology, global markets and small-business friendly policies are likely to help create 150,000 new jobs in startup companies over the next 10 years.

Statistics like these indicate that support for startups should become more of a priority in federal government, as well as in the general public's lives. We would love to hear what you think of this news - please share in the comments below.

Congratulations to anyone who is helping to drive this "unprecedented boom"! I'm looking at you Launch Academy members!
