New survey from Modus Research shows it is harder to get ahead and build a business


A new survey conducted by Modus Research shows that Canadian managers and executives believe that over the last 25 years, it is harder for people to get ahead in Canada and harder to grow a business.

At the same time, they felt that the quality of life for Canadians had improved and the state of the economy was more or less the same.

These results came from a survey conducted in July, 2017 amongst 730 managers and executives from the Modus Business panel, the only fully representative and randomly sampled panel of all managers and executives across Canada. The results have been weighted by organization size and region and are accurate to within 4% points 95 times out of a 100.
