The Canadian private equity industry is making a swift recovery from the financial crisis. In 2011, investment levels returned to nearly 80% of the peak levels seen in 2007, making last year the third best on record in terms of deal count. Comparatively, the U.S. private equity industry closed in 2011 with only 57% of its peak deal flow. As such, Canada merits a close watch in 2012.
