Articles and reports: 11-621-M2019001


An enterprise is said to be multinational if it controls or is controlled by an enterprise outside of Canada. Multinational enterprises (MNEs) are an important part of the Canadian economy. This paper uses financial statement data from the Annual Financial and Taxation Statistics program and tax sources to answer questions about MNEs, such as: What industries have the highest concentrations of MNEs? How do these enterprises compare in terms of size and profitability to enterprises that do not have affiliates outside of Canada? How diverse are the operations of Canadian- controlled MNEs abroad?
