June 2021 SME business outlook -Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB)

Small business confidence over the short and long-term gained momentum in June. With many provinces announcing easing of restrictions, due to solid vaccine rollout plans and lower hospitalization rates, business optimism improved without a doubt. 

CFIB's Business Barometer® index, which is based on 12-month forward expectations for business performance, reached 70.1—an almost four-point gain since May. The more immediate optimism index based on the 3-month outlook improved by five points and reached 56.8.
