  • Table: 88-001-X19990097966
    Description:

    The statistics presented in this bulletin are derived from our latest survey of industrial research and development activities in Canada. The survey reports on the research and development spending intentions for 1999, the estimates for 1998 and the actual expenditures for 1997 of corporations performing research and development activities in Canada. In 1997, a decision was made to eliminate the short survey forms in favour of administrative data, in order to reduce the response burden.

    Description:

    The study of the adoption and dissemination of technologies is one of the key components of innovation and technological development. Indeed, it is through the adoption of newer, more advanced, technologies that industries can increase their production capabilities, improve their productivity, and expand their lines of new products and services. Surveys on the adoption of new technologies complement other information collected about R&D and innovation, allow the measurement of and how quickly and in what way industries adapt to technological change.

    This is the fifth Survey of Advanced Technology in the Canadian Manufacturing Sector. Three surveys of advanced manufacturing technologies were conducted in 1987, 1989 and 1993 (which was part of the Survey of Advanced Technology in Canadian Manufacturing), followed by a survey of the use of biotechnology by Canadian industries, conducted in 1997.

    Increasingly, manufacturing industries rely on information technology and telecommunications, computerizing and linking all functions of their production process. This survey puts the emphasis on issues such as the use of communication networks, whether internal (e. g. Local Area Networks) or external (e.g. the Internet).

    Description:

    This study provides background information towards developing working definitions of e-commerce. In addition, through selected case studies it examines whether respondents could provide information for such measurements. The study distinguishes between e-commerce and e-business, the former being a sub-set of the latter and emphasizes computer-mediation as an important feature of this phenomenon. A definition of e-commerce is then proposed: "Transactions carried over computer-mediated channels that comprise the transfer of ownership or the entitlement to use tangible or intangible assets".

    Description:

    A new study uses official statistics for the first time to analyze market share in Canada'a fast-growing telecommunications industry. By breaking down data from a 1997 survey by industry, type of supplier and firm size, the study provides invaluable information about the industry's players and reinforces its importance to the Canadian economy.

    Description:

    Foreign ownership in telecommunications - always a sensitive issue for Canada - is likely to become even more important for policymakers to follow in the future, as globalization leads to increased competition. A new paper from Statistics Canada sheds light on the make-up of the industry, comparing the performance of foreign-and-Canadian-controlled firms.

    Description:

    Twenty years ago, it was rare for a university to patent an invention, create a spin-off company or license a technology - the priority was to "publish or perish." But according to the results of a new pilot survey, the catch phrase might well become "patent or publish". In 1997-98, Canada's universities registered 143 new patents and licensed 243 technologies, bringing in almost $16 million in royalties.

    Description:

    This article uses new 1998 data to update previous estimates of the proportion of Canadian households regularly using computer communications, analyzing the relationships between usage and location of use, household income, and other demographic factors. The article also looks at the growth of household connectedness over the past year, as well as the time spent using computer communications from home for a variety of services that can be accessed through the Internet.

    Description:

    An extensive survey on preparedness for the Year 2000 computer bug was conducted by Statistics Canada in February and March of 1999. Senior managers in some 10,100 public and private organizations from across Canada were contacted. They were asked about the various steps that their organizations might have taken to address the Year 2000 issue, including: assessment, conversion and testing of systems for Year 2000 compliance; communications with business partners (customers, suppliers and service providers), and Year 2000-related contingency planning. Questions on the timelines that had been established for completing these preparations were also included.

    In general, most businesses and organizations said they had taken at least some steps to prepare their systems. Respondents also reported they were confident that their organizations would be ready in time for the Year 2000, and most organizations expected to be ready before the end of September of 1999. Preparations, however, generally remained a work in progress, and some organizations were not planning to finish until the last quarter of the year. This report includes detailed tabulations of the survey results, with breakdowns for 16 industrial sectors and five geographic regions.

    Description:

    Rural populations are defined, in part, by their distance to a metropolitan centre. The use of computers and, more recently, access to the Internet have been proposed as a way for rural residents to reduce the cost of distance. The purposes of this bulletin are to review the use of computers by members of rural households and, specifically, to review their use of the Internet.

    Description:

    The cable television industry has reported revenues of $2.8 billion in 1997, a 3.9% increase over 1996. Total revenue from basic cable television operations increased by 3.2% to $1,967.9 million from $1,906.1 million. Total revenue from non-basic and other services increased by 5.7% to $819.5 million from $775.5 million.

  • Table: 88-516-X
    Description:

    Innovation is at the heart of economic growth and development. It is through innovation that new products are brought to market, new production processes developed and organizational change realized. Given existing cross-industry variations in structure, competitiveness and maturity, it is reasonable to expect that firms in different industries will innovate for different reasons, in different ways and with different results. This report focuses on how the innovation activities of firms in three dynamic service industries are conditioned by their different environments.

    Through an understanding of what competitive pressures come into play and how these pressures affect the type of innovation that is performed, Innovation in dynamic service industries goes some way in illustrating how innovation regimes differ substantially, and quite logically, from one industry to another.

    This is the fifth in the series of publications on innovation and technological change in Canada. One of the earlier studies investigated the type of innovation taking place in the manufacturing sector (Baldwin and Da Pont, Innovation in Canadian manufacturing enterprises, Catalogue No. 88-513-XPB). Two others focused on advanced manufacturing technologies. The first (Baldwin and Sabourin, Technology adoption in Canadian manufacturing, Catalogue No. 88-512-XPB) outlined the intensity of use of these technologies. The second (Baldwin, Sabourin, and Rafiquzzaman, Benefits and problems associated with technology adoption, Catalogue No. 88-514-XPE) investigated the determinants of adoption. Another study (Baldwin, Innovation and intellectual property, Catalogue No. 88-515-XPE) examined how innovative firms protect their intellectual property after they have innovated.
