Read the call for proposals for all details. The SFGSME is an enterprise-level survey designed to document what financing small and medium enterprises are using, and to collect information on recent attempts to obtain new financing. The database also contains information on barriers to growth, the financial position of SMEs, the characteristics of ownership and the extent to which the enterprise is involved in innovation and intellectual property.

The Education and Labour Market Longitudinal Linkage Platform

We are pleased to inform researchers that, as announced in the recent federal budget, a longitudinal platform linking education and labour market data is currently being developed with resources from Employment and Social Development Canada. This secure data platform will help to better track and make available important labour market information. All datasets and linkage keys prepared for the platform will be made available to researchers through the RDCs across Canada. For now, the Governance Committee supervising the implementation of the platform invites feedback from researchers as to what information they would like to get from this platform. Please contact Grant Gibson to share your recommendations.
