Consider This:
Protean Strategies suggested the estimated size of the 2SLGBTQIA+ market in Canada is between $90 to $100 billion, or 7.2% of Canada’s GDP.
One in 40 businesses across Canada is owned by a member of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. This amounts to 28,000 2SLGBTQIA+-owned Canadian businesses who collectively generate 1% of Canada’s gross corporate revenues and employ over 435,000 full- and part-time jobs – roughly equivalent to the population of Halifax! In other words: 2SLGBTQIA+ business is big business.
Supplier Diversity is the strategic process of corporations reaching out to groups not traditionally included in their supply chain. For more information please contact Maurice LaBorde at mauricel@mediaedge.ca or Phone: 647-494-4268
