The study analyzes the development of Canadian business by examining the connection betweeen firm-level growth and decline and elite knowledge and influence connections that Canadian businesses use to link themselves to other corporations and cities nationally and globally. The rearch focuses on the inter-firm and inter-city linkages embodied in the boards of directors of Canada's leading corporations. Board member selection practices among firms can be linked directly to business growth and decline. Broadly-based works can play a role in encouraging firm growth through access to elite knowledge and influence networks.
