1. Welcome to our Immigrant Entrepreneurs Survey!

5% of survey complete.
In collaboration with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Hispanic Business Alliance, you have been invited to participate in a survey that examines the experiences of immigrant entrepreneurs. The survey will ask questions about your experience on various issues related to starting a business and/or becoming self-employed in Canada.

Participation in this survey is voluntary and by participating you will help decision-makers understand the challenges and opportunities immigrants face in starting a business and evaluate the impact immigrant entrepreneurs have on the Toronto economy.  A report based on the findings will be published as part of a doctoral dissertation.

The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.  Be assured that your responses to the survey are completely anonymous.  No personal details that can identity you will be shared or published. Information will only be reported in aggregate form. All data will be kept on a secure, password protected computer.

Throughout the survey there are places for you to make comments related to the questions asked.  Please use that space to elaborate on your answers or share any thoughts, as you see fit.  At the end of the survey you will be asked if we may use your comments in the upcoming report summarizing the research findings.  If permission is granted, any comments will remain anonymous.

If you have any questions about the survey or the research please send an email to hispanic.entrepreneur@gmail.com

Thank you for participating.
