In The Conference Board of Canada’s latest survey of business leaders, business confidence has reached its highest level in two years. This is encouraging news, considering business sentiment was at historic lows throughout 2020. Effective COVID-19 vaccines are rolling out both globally and nationally, and our survey results indicate that businesses hope the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic will subside in the short term.

About the Index of business confidence

The Conference Board of Canada surveys Canadian business leaders every quarter on the state of their business’ sales and finances, their investment plans, and their expectations for the coming six months. The results are available to e-Data subscribers, and analysis is available to e-Library subscribers or for a one-time fee. The Index of business confidence has been produced since 1993.
