Self-employed Canadians : who and why? / by Lahouaria Yssaad and Vincent Ferrao.: CS71-222/2019-2E-PDF

"Self-employment is a major aspect of labour-market activité and can be an important source of employment growth. While increases in self-employment have sometimes been linked to economic downturns, there appears to be no evidence that economic necessity is a significant factor in "choosing" this type of work arrangement"--Introduction, page 4.
