The huuman layer is your essential weekly small business report that covers all the relevant news, reports, updates and numbers that any Small Business owner (or person interested in Small Business) in Canada should know about. If you run a small business, are thinking of starting one, or support those who found them, The huuman layer is the free weekly insight you need to make better decisions in unprecedented times.

It’s written and curated by the expert team behind huumans, the first smart accounting, bookkeeping and business ecosystem designed entirely for Small Businesses and their owners. huumans was founded in 2020 by the co-founders of Wagepoint, North America’s most accessible payroll solution for small businesses.

In addition to The huuman layer, subscribers also get automatic access to two additional free monthly(ish) newsletters; The Data Room, which is focused on Small Business data and trend analysis, and The Balance Sheet, which is focused on Small Business opinion and discussion.

Subscribing is free and you’ll receive a copy of The huuman layer to your inbox each week

Undecided? Here are some reasons to consider subscribing.

Smarter. We don’t just link to press releases from business organizations who usually have an axe to grind or a product to promote. We find the useful information and remove the fluff.

No noise. It’s hard for a small business owner to get find relevant information online, and work out what’s BS and what’s true. So we spend time surfacing and verifying useful things each week - and make sure it’s useful, accurate and timely.

Unique content. We typically write a long-read article each month written by an industry expert, deep-diving into tough topics, data trends and the future of small business. You’ll get a link to those articles direct to your inbox before anyone else.

Best data. Each week we’ll update you on the movements in Prime Rates, GICs, RSPs, Mortgages, Minimum Wage by Province, EI, CPP, Exchange Rates - all the accurate data you need to make decisions each week on property leases, employee benefits and cash-flow.

Opportunity. We report on the changes to Provincial and Federal Small Business Grants and Programmes, along with time-critical Disaster Relief - so you’ll know what you and your business can apply for and what’s changing in the world of federal and provincial politics.

Invest in better Small Business. We’re on a mission to make running a successful small business more accessible to everyone. Subscribing and sharing The huuman layer helps us reach more small business owners and makes accessible small business information more of a reality for more people.
