    Description:

    This Economic Insights article presents estimates of the nominal output of foreign-owned multinationals operating in different sectors of Canada’s economy. It examines changes in the value added of foreign majority-owned affiliates, highlighting contributions by country of control. Estimates are examined separately for affiliates operating in resource, manufacturing and service industries. Developed by the Canadian Economic Accounts, the new data summarized in this article are part of a series of projects designed to provide more detailed information on the global dimensions of Canada’s economy. Annual estimates of the value added of foreign-owned affiliates are currently available from 2010 to 2016.

    Description:

    Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) describes strategies by multinational enterprises (MNEs) to reduce their tax burden. This paper develops 5 simple indicators of BEPS using a framework inspired by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and data available within Statistics Canada. Our goal is to explore whether Canada's tax base may be adversely impacted by BEPS.

    Description:

    An enterprise is said to be multinational if it controls or is controlled by an enterprise outside of Canada. Multinational enterprises (MNEs) are an important part of the Canadian economy. This paper uses financial statement data from the Annual Financial and Taxation Statistics program and tax sources to answer questions about MNEs, such as: What industries have the highest concentrations of MNEs? How do these enterprises compare in terms of size and profitability to enterprises that do not have affiliates outside of Canada? How diverse are the operations of Canadian- controlled MNEs abroad?

    Description:

    Output growth in Canadian manufacturing was slower in the 2000s than in the 1990s. The sector’s real output declined, in contrast to an overall increase in output in the business sector (Clarke and Couture 2017). It fell rapidly during the 2007-to-2009 financial crisis, and returned to its pre-crisis level only in 2016. The market share of foreign-controlled firms also declined after 2000 (Baldwin and Li 2017).

    This paper examines the role of multinationals and reallocation in productivity growth in the Canadian manufacturing sector for the period from 2001 to 2010, a period of significant change in this sector. It contributes to the literature on several fronts. First, it complements the literature by examining productivity growth at the firm level. This paper also seeks to examine whether the decline that started around 2006 was associated with changes in the effect of reallocation and the role of foreign multinationals in aggregate productivity growth.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The paper's main objective is to provide a concise synthesis of a wide array of data and research on multinationals originating in Statistics Canada, focusing on both historical and current studies.

    Chapter 2 discusses the macroeconomic contribution of foreign multinationals, focusing on two leading indicators of foreign multinational activity, foreign control and foreign direct investment. This chapter also describes studies that evaluate the contribution that foreign-controlled companies make to aggregate trade flows, linking changes in multinational trade intensity to the strategic reorganization of their production activities.

    Chapter 3 concentrates on the strategies and activities of foreign multinationals that are relevant to ongoing debates over whether the presence of foreign multinationals promotes, or hampers, Canada's industrial competitiveness. This chapter first examines evidence that domestic and foreign firms respond differently to domestic market conditions. Second, it asks whether foreign firms compete in different ways than domestic firms do. Third, it examines the relative emphasis that foreign multinationals place on innovation and technology practices, and reports on the relationship between these activities and observable market outcomes. Fourth, it reports on the contribution that foreign-controlled firms make to productivity growth. Fifth, it discusses new research that focuses on the relationship between foreign ownership and head-office employment. Studies in these areas speak directly to the issue of whether foreign multinationals truncate or develop their corporate activities in host markets.

    Chapter 4 focuses on studies that examine the foreign activities of Canadian-owned multinationals and how their domestic plants compare to foreign-controlled plants operating in Canada.

    Chapter 5 offers an appraisal of Statistics Canada's research on multinationals.

    Description:

    This paper examines the incidence of foreign control in Canadian non-financial industries. It focuses on changes in the share of assets and revenues under foreign control over a long-run period during which Canada's regulatory climate shifted from being more restrictive to more liberal in its treatment of inward foreign direct investment. These regulatory changes coincided with a retrenchment and then a resurgence in the activities of foreign multinationals in Canadian industry. We report aggregate results for non-financial industries, along with specific tabulations for the energy sector. More detailed industry tabulations are presented for the 2000-2003 period.
