    SME and Entrepreneurship Policy in Canada

    SMEs make an important contribution to the Canadian economy. They account for 60% of total employment, and Canada performs very well across many measures of small business generation, growth and innovation. However, further increases in productivity in medium-sized firms, an increase in SME exports, a greater business start-up rate and an increased number of high-growth firms could bring substantial benefits for the national economy.
    This report identifies several areas where new policy approaches could help achieve these objectives. Framework conditions for small business could be improved in business taxation, public procurement, access to financing and the commercialisation of research. New and extended programmes could be introduced in domains including entrepreneurship education, management advice and consultancy, and workforce skills development, notably for minority populations. A major effort is recommended to prioritise women's entrepreneurship, including by supporting social enterprises, and federal support could be offered to support the exchange of information on best practice SME regulations and programmes among provinces and territories. All this could be brought together and co-ordinated through the umbrella of a national strategy and lead agency for SME and entrepreneurship policy.

    Montréal métropole de talent - Pistes d'action pour améliorer l'emploi, l'innovation et les compétences

    Montréal dispose de nombreux atouts pouvant lui permettre de se positionner parmi les métropoles les plus dynamiques des pays de l’OCDE. La métropole québécoise bénéficie notamment d’une grande capacité d’attraction et de formation des talents et d’un écosystème d’innovation dense constitué d’acteurs variés tels que des grandes firmes industrielles, de nombreuses start-up dans des secteurs émergents et des universités de premier plan. Toutefois ce potentiel de la métropole québécoise ne s’est pas pleinement concrétisé en termes de création d’emploi et de richesse collective au cours des dernières années.

    Ce rapport examine ce paradoxe et propose des pistes d’action pour rendre l’économie montréalaise plus dynamique, innovante, inclusive, et génératrice de plus d’emplois et de meilleure qualité. Il met en évidence l’importance d’une meilleure utilisation des talents et des compétences, en encourageant l’innovation et la croissance des PME, et en adaptant mieux la formation et la recherche aux besoins des individus et des acteurs économiques montréalais. Seule une stratégie globale, intégrée et activement poursuivie par l’ensemble des partenaires du territoire pourra permettre à Montréal de jouer véritablement son rôle de moteur du développement économique et social.
