Public Sector Universe
This product presents the Public Sector Universe, defined by Statistics Canada as a list of institutional units that are included in the economic measurement of governments in Canada. An institutional unit is defined as an economic entity that is capable, in its own right, of owning assets, incurring liabilities, and engaging in economic activities and in transactions with other entities.
It includes both the general government and government business enterprise sectors for all levels of government in Canada, annually, since 2008. The list will be disseminated in stages with this release focusing on the federal, provincial-territorial and municipal governments and the government business enterprises they control, along with the education sector.
