About CFIB Research & Economic Analysis

Our research is based on members' views, which are fully collected in-house through our various member surveys.

CFIB represents over 95,000 member businesses across Canada. Our membership reflects a diverse group of successful businesses of all sizes, in a wide range of industries, and in all regions of the country. All members are able to participate in our surveys and we operate using a one-member one-vote system.

We release exclusive research, often survey-based but also relying on a wide range of other methodologies, striving to produce clear, credible and compelling data and analysis that can support the success of independent business in Canada.
