    Description:

    Canada has benefited both from the direct effect of higher exports to China and indirectly from the upward pressure on commodity prices. Canada diversified its exports away from its traditional dependence on wheat to industrial goods and forestry products. Meanwhile, Canada's increasing imports from China have raised incomes in that country while supplying a new source of low-priced goods, especially to firms in North America investing in machinery and equipment.

    Description:

    This paper considers the implications of changing trade barriers on the survival of Canadian manufacturing firms. A segmented market Cournot model was developed to describe the effects of trade liberalization for heterogeneous firms operating in diverse industries. The predictions of this model are tested empirically using firm-level data for both public and private corporations and tariff rates for both Canada and the United States. Our findings suggest that Canadian tariff reductions decreased the probability of the survival of Canadian firms while declines in American tariffs increased the probability. Combining these two effects, firms in two-thirds of Canadian manufacturing industries saw their probability of survival increase as a result of the tariff reductions mandated by the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement. However, the sensitivity of individual firms to tariff changes was mitigated by the characteristics of those firms. In particular, productivity and leverage played substantial roles in determining a firm's vulnerability to failure as a result of trade liberalization.

  • Articles and reports: 11-010-X20040036835
    Description:

    This article focus on the reasons for the recent sharp shift in Canada's terms of trade and the distributional effects on the economy, which have already been considerable. We also look to the recent American experience with a sharply rising dollar as a guide to how different sectors of the economy could gain or lose from these changes. The terms of international trade - defined as the ratio of our export prices to import prices - shifted in favour of importers at the expenses of exporters.

  • Articles and reports: 11-621-M2004011
    Description:

    Since 2000, a time when international export markets were weak, Canada's provincial and territorial economies have increased their reliance on interprovincial exports as a key source of economic growth. This is a marked contrast to the 1992 to 2000 period when international sales grew at a rapid rate and outpaced the gains in interprovincial exports. This article examines the performance of international and interprovincial exports for the Canadian provinces and territories during the last decade with a focus on the more recent period (2000 to 2002).

    This article profiles the diamond mining industry in Canada, with a special emphasis on the Northwest Territories (NWT). This new industry is contributing substantially to growth in gross domestic product, investment, international trade and government revenues.

    Description:

    When it comes to cultural or artistic products such as sculptures and paintings, Italy has centuries of rich cultural heritage to draw upon. Thus, it comes as no small surprise that Italy is a major source for culture goods imports to Canada. From 1996 to 2002, Italy was ranked sixth in terms of Canada's suppliers of culture goods.

    Imports from Italy had previously been flat or declining until 2001, but jumped 72% year-to-year in 2002. The increase came despite a sizable appreciation of the Euro against the Canadian dollar. Since spending on culture goods tends to increase with income, it is possible that Canada's growth in disposable income and consumer spending since 2001 contributed to this jump.
