The report includes a series of charts detailing the number of private sector businesses in Canada from 2009 to 2013, how many businesses were formed and how many disappeared.  In 2013, there were 1,090,500 private sector businesses in Canada - an increase of almost 8,000 over 2012. 

The numbers are also broken down by industry classification and contribution and destruction of employment creation. 

Retail Trade (16.3%), Manufacturing (13.1%) and Accommodation and Food Services (10.1%) made up the largest share of the Canadian economy in 2013. 

The industry to contribute the most to employment creation was Construction at 13.3%, with Retail Trade second and Accommodation and Food Services third.
