Canadian Economic Tracker: A new data visualization tool

Released: 2023-05-16

The new Canadian Economic Tracker presents selected monthly indicators from Statistics Canada's Common Output Database Repository to highlight the interrelated dynamics within the Canadian economy. The goal of this tool is to provide timely, granular and customizable data and interactive charts of economic activity to the public. The Tracker currently includes six indicators: business openings and closures, employment and weekly earnings, job vacancies and vacancy rates, gross domestic product, the Consumer Price Index, and the Industrial Product Price Index.

  Note to readers

Each indicator is created from the most current release of Statistics Canada's Common Output Database Repository data series. The data are monthly values and can have different starting periods. An indexed value has been created to facilitate tracking and comparison from the base period selected by the user. The indicators can also be expressed in terms of month-over-month changes and year-over-year changes.

All indicators are available at the national level and can be disaggregated into more granular industry or product class. Some indicators can also be further disaggregated into more granular geography at the province/territory level and at the census metropolitan area/census agglomeration level.

Future versions of the Canadian Economic Tracker might include additional indicators to provide a more comprehensive picture of the economy.


The Canadian Economic Tracker, which is part of the series Statistics Canada - Data Visualization Products (Catalogue number71-607-X), is now available.
