Just Ask BDC Session
The COVID-19 confinement has completely changed consumer habits, leading to one of the worst economic crises in history. What does this mean for Canadian entrepreneurs?

To find out, BDC surveyed 1,000 business owners and 2,000 consumers in Canada to better understand:

  • How the crisis is changing Canadians’ habits
  • What the country’s entrepreneurs are doing to adapt

As part of BDC’s Small Business Week, join us for an interactive session with BDC’s Chief Economist, Pierre Cléroux. In addition to answering your questions live, he will provide a brief economic outlook and share key insights from BDC’s new study, The Response: How Entrepreneurs Are Adapting to the Pandemic.
