A majority of survey respondents say they expect 2014 will be a better year than 2013.

Business owners across Canada are more optimistic about the future than this time last year, according to a new report.

BMO Financial Group discloses this finding in its semi-annual “BMO Small Business Confidence Report.” Launched last fall, the report produces an index score that measures the level of confidence small business owners have in the economy based on a series of key indicators, including how they feel their business is currently performing, if they believe the next year will be a better/worse year for business and if they expect their business will grow/shrink next year.
