The report identifies the overall Ontario Business Confidence Index, the immediate steps that government and the private sector must take to enhance Ontario’s economic competitiveness and spur job creation in the province.
Some key findings of the survey include:
70 percent of businesses in the Ottawa region are confident in their own economic outlook
41 percent of businesses express confidence in Ontario’s economy, up marginally from last year
55 percent of businesses plan to expand in the next 5 years
Not to be confused with the Ontario Chamber’s Business Confidence Index, the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Abacus Data will release its own comprehensive Business Confidence Index for Ottawa in the coming weeks.
