Index of Business Confidence: Winter 2013
The Conference Board of Canada
January 22, 2013
This quarterly survey poses ten qualitative questions regarding the business climate and investment intentions to senior officers of approximately 1,500 Canadian business organizations.
Confidence among business leaders rose in the final quarter of 2012, as the Index of Business Confidence climbed 5.3 points to 97.5. The gain brought the index up to about its average level for the past two years. Respondents to our survey were more optimistic, thanks to a brighter outlook for the global economy.
