  • Articles and reports: 45-28-0001202000100086
    Description:

    This article presents an analysis of the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the Canadian beef supply chain, from Ranch to Slaughter House, from Wholesale to Retail and from domestic market to Imports/Exports. The study uses various data sources from Statistics Canada and Agriculture and Agri-food Canada (AAFC) with main focus on wholesale services prices. This publication also uses data from the product-based development project for the Wholesale Services Price Index (WSPI) using the North American Product Classification System (NAPCS). This project is part of Statistics Canada's user-centric modernization initiative. The product-based WSPI data are not yet released to the public.

    Note: The WSPI represents the change in the price of wholesale services, which is defined as the margin price (or margin). The margin is the difference between the average purchase price and the average selling price of a given product. It is not a wholesale selling price.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 2401
    Description: This survey provides information on the performance of the wholesale trade sector and when combined with other statistics, represents an important indicator of the Canadian economy.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 2433
    Description: The Annual Wholesale and Retail Trade Survey (AWRTS) collects data from a sample of wholesalers and independent retailers on their operating revenues and expenditures by trade group at national and provincial or territorial levels. This information is required by all levels of government to develop national and regional economic programs and policies and is used by businesses, trade associations and others to assist in decision making, marketing efforts and to assess business conditions. Data on retail chain and department store organizations are collected from the Annual Retail Chain and Department Store Survey (survey #2447). Data on non-store retail activity on an annual basis are collected from the Survey of Automotive Vending Machine Operators (survey #2404, last conducted for the 1996 reference year) and from Survey of Direct Selling in Canada (survey #2405, last conducted for the 1997 reference year).

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 2445
    Description: This survey collects the financial and operating data needed to develop national and regional economic policies and programs.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 5061
    Description: Note: As of the 2008 reference year, these data are collected through the Annual Wholesale Trade Survey (record #2445). The wholesale trade sector comprises establishments primarily engaged in wholesaling merchandise and providing related logistics, marketing and support services. The wholesale process is generally an intermediate step in the distribution of merchandise; many wholesalers are therefore organized to sell merchandise in large quantities to retailers, and business and institutional clients. However, some wholesalers, in particular those that supply non-consumer capital goods, sell merchandise in single units to final users. In recent years, there has been a growing need for better inter-provincial/territorial detail and more commodity-specific information, largely due to free trade, increased international marketing and increased global competition. There are a variety of organizations, sector associations and levels of government who make use of the information provided. Wholesalers can use survey results to compare their financial performance against the average for similar types of businesses as well as for marketing purposes, to help determine market share and help to examine trends in sources and destination of goods. Wholesale associations are better able to monitor industry growth and promote their wholesale industries. Investors may be better able to monitor industry performance, which could result in better access to investment capital by wholesalers. Governments will be better able to understand the role of wholesalers in the economy, which will aid in the development of labour force policies and tax incentives. The data is an important input to the provincial trade flows and the generation of balanced provincial input-output tables and the articulation of provincial Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
