Release date: October 5, 2021

Did you know that Canada's maple sugar and syrup (HS1702.20) exports worldwide were worth more than $32 million in May 2018? And that almost forty percent, $2.5 million, of Canada's organic maple syrup exports went to Germany during that month? Or that Canada's top 25 main commodities imported from Brazil in December 2018 included alumina prepared for processing into aluminum, raw cane sugar, unwrought forms of gold, unroasted coffee, petroleum coke, chemical wood pulp and orange juice? Statistics Canada has built a new Canadian International Merchandise Trade (CIMT) web application that will allow trade data users to find the answers to such questions. This modern and user-centric web application will provide users with the most detailed level of commodity data, HS8 and HS10. The new CIMT web app will give customs trade data users the option to browse different commodities and view the commodity's national and provincial levels of exports and imports. Through Quick reports, trade data users will be able to obtain, for example, the top 25 commodities being traded between Canada and a trading partner of interest, such as the world, the United States, China, New Zealand, the Republic of South Africa... Users will also have the opportunity to gather information on import and export values and quantities though time, country or U.S. state of destination or origin for all Harmonized System (HS) commodities classified under a specific HS chapter or HS heading. To allow users to analyze different economic trends of customs-based commodity trade data, we have also included monthly and annual data frequency under the Extract data tab in this modernized web app. We care about your data requests and therefore we decided to build this web application to help you obtain what you are looking for in the snap of a finger. Statistics Canada always seeks to provide users with critical statistical information that matters. Please go check out the new CIMT web application and give us your feedback.
