About this report
Ontario, and Canada more widely, are home to a vibrant entrepreneurial culture, yet many homegrown businesses face the challenge of becoming high-growth firms, or “scale-ups”.
This report maps and benchmarks scale-up activity in Ontario. Scale-ups are vital drivers of job creation and GDP growth in the province: revenue scale-ups generate $282 billion in business revenue and young employment scale-ups employ close to 10% of employees working for young companies. Using a new methodology, Scale-up Activity in Ontario helps policymakers and researchers understand where these scale-ups are, and their economic impact in Ontario.
