Business optimism showing growth throughout Canada

According to a recent survey conducted by Canadian accounting and advisory firm Grant Thornton, 70 percent of respondents said they were feeling optimistic about their firms throughout the second quarter.  

Increased optimism could lead to many companies looking to upgrade their office space in the upcoming months. By researching Toronto storage rates, businesses in the area can find the right place to store their documents throughout the move.

The research found 25 percent plan to invest in new buildings, while 40 percent have been looking into ways to upgrade in plant materials and machinery throughout Canada.

“It’s clear that global economic uncertainty continues to weigh on short-term business growth prospects around the globe, but it’s encouraging to see that Canada’s optimism is once again bouncing back," said Bill Brushett, partner at Grant Thornton. "Even in tough times, businesses need to be forward thinking, keep pace with their competitors and continue to invest in the future of their companies.”

One of the impediments to growth among Canadian businesses in a the lack of a skilled workforce, with 35 percent claiming staff is a concern and 43 percent said the skills shortage is forcing them to do more with less.
