Technology, including digitization and the sharing economy, has revolutionized the way Canadians access and pay for goods and services. In response to market pressures and consumer demands, businesses need to innovate how they design, manufacture, advertise, distribute and sell their goods and services. Together with the advent of the sharing economy, which significantly impacts suppliers and customers, the digital economy continues to evolve. It is vital for companies to stay informed of market, legal and regulatory changes.
