    The childcare services industry in Canada is unique in that it is entrusted with a precious resource: close to 1.4 million children. Childcare providers assist with the daunting tasks of promoting child development, ensuring children's safety and well-being, and maintaining responsive relationships with individual children.

    This paper examines the childcare services industry in Canada and is divided into three basic parts. First, the article studies the demand for childcare services, including the $3.5 billion spent by households for these services. The financial characteristics of the industry and the roles played by the non-profit sector and government fee-subsidy and grant programs are examined next.

    Description:

    This article examines characteristics of the specialized design services industry. While the industry is relatively small, it is strategically important as good design can make products and services more competitive. At a more detailed level, this article provides a 1998 snapshot of the design industry's five sub-industries: landscape architecture, interior design, industrial design, graphic design and "other" design services.

    The article discusses how these five sub-industries are becoming less distinct. The size of firms and how size might be related to expenses, employment patterns in the industry and characteristics of the design workforce are also studied. Also investigated is the regional distribution of design firms, the types of clients they serve and the activities they undertake. Most of the article's findings are based on results from the 1998 Survey of Specialized Design and the 1996 Census.
