    Description:

    In 2006, a question on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags was introduced on the Survey of Electronic Commerce and Technology. RFID tags are currently used by organizations for a wide variety of purposes. The concept of RFID tags combines radio frequencies and bar code systems, giving mobility to logistics. The data on RFID tag usage in Canada show the application of this technology is in its infancy. The small number of organizations that use RFID tags can be explained by the newness of the technology and the potentially high costs of investment and implementation. Despite the initial costs, organizations that use RFID benefit in the longer run.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Using data on manufacturing plants operating in Canada for the period 1981 to 1997, we estimate the effect of changes in the level of foreign control upon labour productivity in domestically-controlled plants. We distinguish between foreign control in own industry of domestically-controlled plants and foreign control in industries linked by their supply or use of intermediate inputs. We find that foreign control increases productivity growth in domestically-controlled plants in a way that is consistent with the transfer of technology from foreign suppliers to domestically-controlled plants. The positive productivity effects of foreign control are more pronounced for those plants that outsource more intermediates, and who purchase science-based intermediate inputs (i.e., electronics, machinery and equipment, and chemicals).

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Canada is one of the most trade-oriented countries in the world. This paper looks at how our exports have become more resource-dependent, thanks to energy demand from the US and overseas demand for industrial goods. Meanwhile, our imports have diversified away from the US and Japan, mostly to China.

  • Table: 31-001-X
    Description:

    This publication provides estimated values of manufacturers' shipments, inventories and orders by month. Data are presented for 21 major groups and selected individual industries at the 3- to 6-digit level of detail, as defined by the 1997 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), as well as aggregates for durable, non-durable and total manufacturing. Major group industry data are shown with and without adjustment for seasonal variation. Unadjusted shipment totals by province and by major groups within provinces are also shown.

    These data are used to monitor the business cycle in the manufacturing sector of the economy, to evaluate and develop financial and industrial policy, and to provide market data at the detailed industry level. Related information on manufacturers' opinions on the current state of inventories and orders and about employment and production prospects over the next three months are available from the Business Conditions Survey (BCS).

    The survey is carried out at the beginning of January, April, July and October. Responses are available approximately five days after the reference month in Statistics Canada's The Daily. The BCS balance of opinion data often serves as a good guide to the direction of change, at least a month in advance of the corresponding quantitative data.

    Description:

    This report describes the Electronic Publications Pilot (EPP) which was conducted to gather knowledge on how library staff and their clients are adjusting to the Internet. The pilot was conducted from September 1996 to September 1997 as a joint initiative of Statistics Canada and the Depository Services Program (DSP), in partnership with the depository library community. The objective of the pilot was to assess the impact of replacing print publications with electronic equivalents via the Internet in DSP libraries. This objective was based on an assumption that the electronic medium will complement print rather than replace it entirely and that departments will continue to produce some print publications in the future. The major conclusions of the pilot cover resources and training, web site feedback, selection of publications for conversion to electronic format, web site access and security, publication functionality and access and archiving.
