This chapter analyses entrepreneurship within the Chinese community in Canada and estimates the level of employment created by Chinese‐Canadian entrepreneurship there. Historically, Chinese entrepreneurship in Canada was limited to mainly ethnic businesses in retailing and food services. The growth of the Chinese‐Canadian community and the rise of the Chinese middle class since the 1980s have resulted in a diversification of Chinese entrepreneurship, extending beyond conventional businesses and branching into professional and health services and other types of operations. The ethnic business as a niche market probably accounts for less than one‐third of Chinese entrepreneurship in Canada. In addition, available evidence shows that Chinese entrepreneurs create employment for both Chinese and non‐Chinese workers, with the vast majority of those employed being non‐Chinese.
