  • 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.

  • Articles and reports: 11-622-M2008018
    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.

  • Articles and reports: 88-003-X20040037435
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This study looks at growth in labour productivity in manufacturing companies that increased their use of advanced technology during the mid-1990s.

  • Articles and reports: 88-003-X20040037436
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This study examined the difference in adoption rates between firms that reported high employment growth and firms that did not.

  • Articles and reports: 11F0027M2004020
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This paper investigates how changes in technology use of individual plants in the Canadian manufacturing sector are related to two measures of performance --productivity growth and market-share growth.

  • Articles and reports: 88-003-X20030026560
    Geography: Canada
    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.

  • Articles and reports: 11F0027M2003012
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This paper investigates the evolution of industrial structure in the Canadian food processing sector and its relationship to technological change. It uses 1998 special survey data on advanced technology use, plant characteristics and plant performance.

  • Articles and reports: 11F0019M2002168
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This paper examines the factors contributing to the adoption of advanced technologies in the Canadian food-processing sector. The numbers of technologies used by a plant is found to be highly correlated with expected gains in firm performance. The benefits of enhanced food safety and quality, as well as productivity improvements, are closely associated with technology use. Impediments that negatively affect technology use include software costs, problems with external financing, lack of cash flow for financing, and internal management problems. Even after accounting for the different benefits and costs associated with technology adoption, the numbers of advanced technologies that are adopted are found to be greater in larger plants, in foreign-controlled plants, in plants that engage in both primary and secondary processing, and in the dairy, fruit and vegetable and "other" food product industries.

  • Articles and reports: 88F0017M2001012
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This report covers the use and planned use of 26 advanced manufacturing technologies (AMTs) at the establishment level. Additional information on skill requirements, technology development and implementation practices, results of technology adoption, barriers to adoption and firms' research and development activities was obtained from the 1998 Survey of Advanced Technologies in Canadian Manufacturing.
