    Description:

    This article describes and quantifies the growth of Canada's dynamic software and computer services industry in the 1990s. Results show that the industry's ouput has doubled in the 1990s, and that its workforce's size and remuneration levels also grew rapidly. The article explores the industry's three largest growth areas (professional services, data processing services and software products development) and offers insights into why these areas are growing. Also examined are international policy developments affecting the industry, including the Voorburg Group and recent trade agreements. The article also discusses the new North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) and how it will improve statistical measurements of this, and other, service industries.

  • Articles and reports: 63F0002X1998019
    Description:

    This paper demonstrates the extent to which jobs are simultaneously created and eliminated in service industries. This job reallocation tends to be higher in knowledge- and information-intensive industries such as business services. However, job reallocation patterns are not necessarily similar across all dynamic industries. This is largely because of differences between various industries': markets; regulatory environments; and abilities to absorb displaced workers into the production of new goods and services. The study further illustrates that high job reallocation causes significant movement of workers between firms and industries, and that this has important implications for training and knowledge flows in the economy.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Travel Agencies in Canada enter the new millennium with many challenges. The gap that they must bridge is a possible erosion of both revenue and customers. The aviation industry has been imposing caps on commissions resulting in the requirement for agencies to sell more product to generate the same revenue. At the same time, selling more product could be more difficult as air carriers and hotels are increasingly offering more direct sales on the Internet. This web presence has enabled carriers and hotels to deliver their product bypassing the travel agencies in the supply chain. There is also increased competition from travel sales web-sites that attempt to attract the business that local travel agents once could have considered as their own. The paper will examine the nature of the challenges facing this service industry and the possible responses.
