Small Business Profile 2003: A Profile of Business in British Columbia Small business contributes to the provincial economy in several ways: by creating and maintaining jobs, through production of goods and services, and by meeting payrolls that support families and stimulate further economic activity. The key measure of economic production of a sector is referred to as its Gross Domestic Product (GDP). GDP represents the value that a sector adds to the raw inputs it uses, which is an important aspect of the sector's contribution to the economy. How large is the contribution of small business to British Columbia's economy relative to other provinces? In 2002, British Columbia's small businesses accounted for 30 per cent of GDP. The only province with a higher proportion of GDP attributed to small business was Prince Edward Island, at 31 per cent, while the province where small business contributed the least was Newfoundland and Labrador, at 16 per cent. The significant contribution in British Columbia, well above the national average of 25 per cent, underlines how important small businesses are to the province's economy. Figure 17: British Columbia has the second highest proportion of GDP comprised of small business in Canada, 2002
Extractions: Download PDF Version Recession spares few industries but an improvement is in sight Economy slips into recession in the third quarter Real GDP is expected to decline again in Q4, by an annualized 1½%, dragged down by continued weakness in exports and poor business investment. September GDP was down 0.8%, suggesting weak momentum heading into the quarter. The two successive quarterly declines in real GDP in the second half of 2001 would qualify as a recession (under a commonly used definition). However, a recovery should begin in the New Year as steep cuts in interest rates to date and a pickup in US demand stimulate activity. Growth is expected to be especially strong by the second half of the year.

Extractions: 15 June 2000 With the technological revolution that is currently sweeping the globe, dealing with change is a growing challenge for businesses these days. This revolution is erasing national frontiers, intensifying competition, and transforming economies everywhere. The rules of the game are constantly being rewritten, and the issues facing businesses are multiplying rapidly. To survive and prosper in today's world, businesses need to keep abreast of global technological trends, be ready to innovate and apply new technologies to both their production processes and the development of new products and services for their clients. From a broader perspective, in order to have a vibrant, dynamic economy, we count on the business community to take the initiatives that increase productivity and competitiveness so that we, as a nation, can benefit from rapidly changing technologies and increasingly open global markets. What business people need, in turn, in order to go confidently about their affairs and take the innovative, and sometimes risky, initiatives we expect of them, is a supportive economic policy environment.

Extractions: What is the Canada-United States Trade Center? The University at Buffalo, in keeping with its role as a catalyst for the educational and economic resurgence of the Western New York Community, established the Canada-United States Trade Center (CUSTAC) in 1988. Developments in Canadian-US relations, which are reflected in part by the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), have created expanded opportunities for research, scholarship, and public service. As a major U.S. research and educational institution located near the economic and demographic heartland of Canada, the University at Buffalo is uniquely positioned to assume a leadership role in the establishment and management of a center devoted to the study of Canada-U.S. economic interactions.

Extractions: Canada's economy rocketed through the first quarter of this year at its fastest pace in more than two years. The economy expanded at a blistering annual rate of 6 per cent, Statistics Canada reported yesterday, more than double the rate recorded in the final quarter of 2001. The dollar, which has been rising for the past two months on foreign exchange markets, bolted higher when the Statscan report was released and ended the day at 65.45 cents (U.S.), up 0.28 cents from Thursday. "The string of positives just keeps coming," said Royal Bank of Canada chief economist Craig Wright. The first-quarter surge put the economy "in full expansion mode," said economist Stéfane Marion of National Bank Financial, meaning that it no longer needs interest rates to remain as low as they are. The central bank is widely expected to raise its benchmark overnight rate to 2.5 per cent from 2.25 per cent on Tuesday, its next rate announcement date. Last summer, gross domestic product, the widest measure of all economic activity, fell by an annualized 0.5 per cent during a period that included the disruption from the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in the United States. But the GDP bounced back at a 2.9-per-cent rate revised from 2 per cent during the fall.
