Independently researched and written, this report acts as a counterpoint to the reams of material being published daily on income inequality and the advantages of the one percent. It demonstrates that Canada’s wealthiest business families are not smug or selfish, as Pierre Berton once famously wrote. Rather, they provide tremendous benefits to millions of Canadians. But it’s a rarely told story. For the first time, the tremendous contributions of our nation’s business families are compiled into a single document. The report is supported by numerous case studies and extensive data.
