CANADA BUSINESS OWNER'S SURVEY

The goals of this survey are to gather information on the business succession plans of small- and-medium-sized (SME) business owners and their views on alternative forms of succession upon retirement, such as conversion to co-operatives. The survey should take you no longer than 10 minutes to complete, and is part of The Conversion to Co-operatives Project (Co-opConvert) funded by the Social Sciences at Humanities Research Council of Canada. Co-opConvert is a research initiative and educational partnership between the University of Toronto’s Centre for Learning, Social Economy, & Work, the Université de Sherbrooke’s Institut de recherche et d’éducation pour les coopératives et les mutuelles, and Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada. The partnership is designed to better understand SME succession issues and business conversions to co-operatives in Canada.
