Canadian business patterns, June 2013

Released: 2013-08-08

Canadian business patterns data are now available for June.

Canadian business patterns data provide counts of active locations by industry classification and employment size for Canada and the provinces/territories. The data are compiled from the Business Register, which is a repository of information on the Canadian business population.

Nationally, there were 2,616,004 active locations recorded in June.

  Note to readers

Data are presented according to the 2011 Standard Geographical Classification, the 2012 North American Industry Classification System and employment size categories.

Starting with the December 2011 reference period, data are available on CANSIM. However, the data should not be considered a time series and each reference period will appear in a separate CANSIM table.

Custom extractions for other geographic levels can also be ordered on a cost-recovery basis. Data prior to December 2011 are also available upon request on a cost-recovery basis.
