Data on provincial and territorial real gross domestic product (GDP) by industry are now available for the year 2019.

Statistics Canada is closely monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 (also known as the novel coronavirus) and will continue to report on the provincial and territorial GDP by industry as information becomes available.

In 2019, real GDP by industry increased in eight provinces. Prince Edward Island (+4.5%) posted the largest increase of all the provinces for a second consecutive year. The growth in this province surpassed the national growth rate of 1.7%—as did the growth in Newfoundland and Labrador (+4.0%), British Columbia (+2.8%), Quebec (+2.7%), Nova Scotia (+2.1%) and Ontario (+1.9%). GDP in New Brunswick (+1.0%) and Manitoba (+1.0%) also grew and in the territories, GDP increased in Nunavut (+6.1%) and Yukon (+1.0%).

In Alberta (-0.6%), Saskatchewan (-0.8%) and the Northwest Territories (-8.8%), GDP contracted in 2019.

Sustainable development goals

On January 1, 2016, the world officially began implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development—the United Nations' transformative plan of action that addresses urgent global challenges over the next 15 years. The plan is based on 17 specific sustainable development goals.

The release on real gross domestic product by industry for provinces and territories is an example of how Statistics Canada supports the reporting on the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. This release will be used in helping to measure the following goal:

  Note to readers

Estimates of provincial and territorial real gross domestic product (GDP) by industry for 2019 are included with this release. The Economic Accounts Statistics Portal and the data visualization product Gross domestic product (GDP) by industry, provinces and territories: Interactive tool also display the latest available results.

The provincial and territorial GDP by industry data at basic prices are chained volume estimates with 2012 as their reference year. This means data for each industry and aggregate are obtained from a chained volume index multiplied by the industry's value added in 2012.

Percentage changes for GDP by industry are calculated using volume measures, that is, adjusted for price variations.

For more information on GDP, see the video "What is Gross Domestic Product (GDP)?"

Revisions

Revised estimates of provincial–territorial GDP by industry for the 2017 to 2019 period will be published in November 2020 with the incorporation of the new benchmark supply and use tables for reference year 2017.
