The State of Women’s Entrepreneurship: A Focus on Black Women Entrepreneurs

To date there has been little research focused on Black women entrepreneurs in Canada. Statistics Canada collects only limited disaggregated data and even less with an intersectional lens. This report provides an overview of the existing research on Black women entrepreneurs in Canada drawing on data and research that exists from a variety of sources. We consider data from Statistics Canada, published research, targeted surveys, evaluations of pilot projects, and consultations with more than 40 women from organizations led by or serving Black women.
