    Description:

    The significance of business services in the economy and their role in fostering competitiveness has attracted considerable attention in recent years. This paper, the first of a two-part series, examines the evolution of business services in Canada over the last three decades. It draws a demographic profile of this group from an industrial and a geographical perspective, and analyzes its size, structure, output and growth, R & D involvement as well as the sources of demand and supply of business service commodities.

    The industrial group is made up of a large number of small firms that produce services to be used primarily as intermediate inputs in the production processes of other industries. Business services industries are labour intensive with high value-added and are predominantly located in metropolitan areas. Their growth has outpaced the economy average by a huge margin. Despite the high level of exports, increasing deficits characterize international trade in business service commodities. Business services account for a significant proportion of R & D performed in Canada. They are not immune to economic downturns.

    Description:

    Several months ago, I was in a restaurant in the Cotswolds in England. The proprietor indicated a gentleman across the room and said, "We have another North American diner, perhaps you know him." The gentleman was from Vancouver. And when the proprietor went to the gentleman from Vancouver and indicated me, I heard across the room, "Oh, the Americans--they're our favorite neighbors". I think the geographic implications of that were lost on the Cotswolds proprietor.

    Description:

    Issues affecting the transportation industry impact on the day to day concerns of Canadians. Changes in policy affecting transportation and trade have altered the landscape for the primary mode of commodity transport, trucking. Economic factors typically affecting the demand for trucking services are - the volume of production of goods for domestic and foreign consumption and exports and imports, interest rates and the value of the Canadian dollar. The supply of truck transport in turn is affected by the price of inputs, namely labour (drivers and helpers) and capital (straight trucks, road tractors and semi- and full-trailers). These variables are key determinants of the day to day activities of the industry.

    Description:

    With the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Canada forged a partnership with the United States and Mexico that would see it enter an era of trade liberalization hitherto unparalleled on the North American continent. In so doing, Canada became a key player and an integral part of the world's largest economic union.

    Description:

    Over the past few years, it has become increasingly difficult to discuss the development of SMEs without making a link to the globalization of markets and thus of the economy. The question may even arise as to whether this globalization, a significant portion of which appears to be linked to the strengthening and expansion of multinationals, will constrain small businesses, which are nevertheless at the origin of most job creation in most industrialized countries and of the industrial restructuring of a number of their regions over the past 15 or 20 years.
