Business is an integral part of every young adult’s future. It influences their careers, incomes and opportunities for personal enterprise. Business has a significant effect on the standard of living and the quality of life of Canadians, while having a growing impact on the environment in which they live. Young adults must be prepared to engage in business activities with confidence and competence, both nationally and internationally.
