Canada’s Venture Capital Landscape 2022

Canadian venture capital (VC) has come into its own during over the last five years, garnering increasing interest from both Canadian and international investors.

This long-term trend culminated in 2021, when average deal size, total investment and the total number of deals all reached record highs. 10-year returns to investors are now at an all-time high of 14%, while median exit value jumped to $90 million. It was also a record year for VC-backed initial public offerings (IPOs), with 12 VC-backed Canadian companies going public.

The 2022 edition of Canada’s Venture Capital Landscape report outlines evidence of this significant progress made and the work still remains to maintain this momentum.
