I've been searching for statistics regarding landscape designers, more speciafically income range, entreprenuerial grants etc. I can't seem to find information anywhere. The gov't of ON has information related to grass cutters, but not actual designers. Does anyone know where I can find any information? I'd like to start my own business within the next couple years and want to get a head start on planning now.

In Toronto (and I'm assuming thru-out Ontario), the good folks at EI run what they call Employment Resource Centres. They are geared to unemployed people researching the job market. I think that anyone can access them, but it wouldn't hurt to call first. They have loads of resource material and access to some websites that the general public normally has to pay to see.

If you're unemployed and collecting EI, you may be eligible for the SEA program, that helps train and finance start-up companies, ask your EI coordinator about it.

You might want try contacting trade and professional associations (eg. OALA - Landscape Architects, or Landscape Ontario - Landscape Contractors) to see if they have info. or can direct you to some sources.

If you're in Toronto, the Toronto Reference Library has a whole section for people researching the job market. The librarians are very helpful.
