Canadian venture capital investments tallied approximately $325 million in Q1, 2011, representing a roughly flat performance when compared to the same period a year ago, according to a report (PDF) by the Canadian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association and Thomson Reuters.

During the period, investment went into 111 companies with an average round size of C$2.8 million.

CVCA president Greg Smith said that the environment for startup investment continues to be poor.

Western Canada and Ontario were responsible for the majority of VC investing during the quarter.
