  • Articles and reports: 13-605-X201800154964
    Description:

    Statistics Canada has done some calculations to determine the accessibility of regulated products— liquor and cannabis—to Canadian households in bricks-and-mortar outlets. Using the agency's geographic databases, the location of each Canadian household is identified, and the distance from that location to the nearest legal retail outlet is calculated. Averages of these distances are then calculated to determine how generally accessible these products are to Canadians. It must be noted this takes no account of online or illegal retailers.

    Geography: Census metropolitan area
    Description:

    This study examines the role that retailers in shopping centres played in the CMA of Vancouver in 2016. The Canadian retail sector has undergone a major transformation in the past ten years with the development of online shopping. Many store based retailers have adopted an omni channel distribution strategy, creating their own e-commerce retail sites, while maintaining a physical store front presence. As one part of this strategy, many store based retailers are continuing to maintain their store fronts at shopping centres. In addition, shopping mall owners are trying to encourage more foot traffic at their malls by rebranding the shopping experience by offering entertainment services and additional food options. As a consequence, information on the sales of retailers located at shopping centres is becoming more important for both shopping centres developers and urban planners.

    Description:

    Statistics Canada's annual retail trade surveys are undergoing changes. Two activities underlie these changes. The re-design of our annual retail trade questionnaires is one. The other is the conversion from the 1980 Standard Industrial Classification (1980 SIC) to the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS). These activities will have significant impacts on the output of the annual surveys.

    This paper has two goals. The first is to inform retail store data users, industry analysts, trade associations and other stakeholders about these changes. The second is to consult with stakeholders on possible data outputs resulting from the changes.

    The paper is organized into five parts. Following the introduction, Part II describes the outputs from the current surveys and compares and contrasts the current outputs with the new. Part III focuses on the introduction of NAICS codes and the changes in coverage for retail trade. In Part IV, the benefits resulting from the above changes are outlined. The final part (Part V) seeks comments or suggestions from data users, retail trade associations and industry specialists on the release of data products as a result of the changes to the surveys.
