  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200900411030
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Energy use is one of the primary contributors to environmental degradation and climate change. This article provides a profile of the Canadian manufacturing industry and the investments made in energy-related processes and technologies in 2006. These investments either reduced the amount of energy used for a process, or lowered the amount of greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants produced through the production and use of energy.

    Description:

    This paper provides an analysis of technological change within the Canadian economy based on data from the 2006 Survey of Electronic Commerce and Technology where firms indicated how they introduced significantly improved technologies. The paper explores differences in the use of methods of introduction of significantly improved technologies by firm/organization size and by industry in both the private and public sectors.

    The paper begins with a brief presentation of previous work carried out on technology introduction. The methodology is described. A description of concepts used in the analysis will follow. Analytic results examining technological change in the private sector overall, by industry and by size, and the public sector overall, by industry and by size are presented. A comparison of technological change in the private and public sectors follows. The paper concludes with a discussion of analytic results and further analytic work that could be undertaken.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This paper examines the presence of knowledge spillovers that affect the adoption of advanced technologies in the Canadian manufacturing sector. It examines whether plants that adopt advanced technologies are more likely to do so when there are other nearby plants that do so within a model of technology adoption.

  • Articles and reports: 11-622-M2007016
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This paper summarizes the results of several research studies conducted by the Micro-economic Analysis Division of Statistics Canada that investigate the impact of advanced technology use on business performance. These studies combine establishment-level survey data on advanced technology practices with longitudinal data that measure changes in relative performance. Together, these studies provide strong evidence that technology strategies have considerable bearing on competitive outcomes after other correlates of plant performance are taken into account. Advanced communications technologies warrant special emphasis, as the use of these technologies has been shown to be closely associated with changes in relative productivity.

    Description:

    Canada has reached its innovation-driven stage of development where the country's global competitiveness is critically linked to its ability to rapidly shift to new innovative technologies and to generate high rates of innovation and commercialization of those technologies. The country has made significant progress in terms of the growth of high- and medium-high technology-intensive exports in the last few decades. The share of high- and medium-high-technology manufacturing industries' products in our total exports has increased from 32.1% in 1980 to 44% in 2002, while our dependence on low- and medium-low technology products has shrunk from 48.0% of total exports in 1980 to 41% in 2002. This paper utilizes Statistics Canada data for the period 1980-2003 to examine trends in the technology intensity of Canada's exports. Trends in the revealed comparative advantage as well as the structural trade balance for technology-intensive goods are also examined. The analyses in the paper show that Canada has made some gains in its relative competitive position in the world trade of high- and medium-high technology goods.

    Description:

    Food processing is one of Canada's largest manufacturing industries, consisting of more than 3,000 establishments. Employing close to 230,000 people in 1998, it boasted a gross domestic product of $15 billion that same year. The relationship between the use of advanced manufacturing technology and firm performance during the 1990s, as measured by growth in labour productivity and growth in market share, is the subject of a recently released Statistics Canada study, which finds that a high-technology orientation is closely associated with success.
