    This study examines the economic footprint created by the Canadian research and development pharmaceutical sector on the Canadian economy in 2020, including a focus on the contribution of Innovative Medicines Canada’s members. While the impact of the sector’s medical research is well known, less known are the economic impacts of the sector on the Canadian economy, such as the value generated, the jobs supported and the investments made.

    Description:

    Micro-level information on buildings and physical infrastructure is increasing in relevance to social, economic and environmental statistical programs. Alternative data sources and advanced analytical methods can be used to generate some of this information. This paper presents how multiple convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are finetuned to classify buildings into different types (e.g., house, apartment, industrial) using their street-view images. The CNNs use the structure of the façade in the building’s image for classification. Multiple state-of-the-art CNNs are finetuned to accomplish the classification task. The trained models provide a proof of concept and show that CNNs can be used to classify buildings using their street-view imagery. The training and validation performance of the trained CNNs are measured. Furthermore, the trained CNNs are evaluated on a separate test set of street-view imagery. This approach can be used to augment the information available on openly accessible databases, such as the Open Database of Buildings.

    Description:

    The federal government offers business innovation and growth support through program streams managed by its departments and agencies. In 2017, enterprises in the manufacturing sector accounted for almost one-quarter of the beneficiaries of this support and received almost one-third of the total value of support (Statistics Canada, 2020). The objective of this analysis is to assess the impact of federal growth and innovation support on the employment and revenue of beneficiary enterprises in the manufacturing sector between 2007 and 2017. This analysis suggests that enterprises that received federal support for growth and innovation experienced stronger employment and revenue growth relative to non-beneficiary enterprises. Over the three years following receipt of support, employment growth for beneficiary enterprises averaged 1.8% per year while, on average, enterprises that did not receive support experienced employment declines. Over the same period, the average annual revenue growth of beneficiary enterprises was higher than that of non-beneficiary enterprises by 4.6 percentage points.
