Notes

  1. The data contained in the provincial map are annual and on a customs basis.
  2. The export values in this data visualization represent the “domestic exports” of a province, as opposed to total exports which include re-exports. Data at the Canada level are also showing domestic exports.
  3. Imports by province are based on the concept of province of clearance, which is the Canadian province (or territory) associated with the customs office responsible for clearing the goods for entry into Canada. Exports by province are based on the concept of province of origin, or province of production.
  4. Data in this visualization can be found in table 12-10-0133-01Opens a new window.

Notes

  1. The data contained in the data visualizations are annual, on a customs basis and not seasonally adjusted.
  2. The North American Product Classification System (NAPCS)Opens a new window is used for the product aggregates.
  3. In the world map, the “net export” variable was calculated by subtracting import from export values on a customs basis. The net export variable differs from the concept of “trade balance”, which is calculated by subtracting import from export values on a balance of payment basis.
  4. Unless otherwise specified, exports are “total exports” (domestic exports plus re-exports).
  5. In the provincial view, the export values represent the “domestic exports” of a province, as opposed to total exports which include re-exports. Data at the Canada level are also showing domestic exports. Domestic exports are goods grown, produced, extracted, or manufactured in Canada, including goods of foreign origin that have been materially transformed in Canada.
  6. In the provincial view, imports by province are based on the province of clearance concept, which is the Canadian province (or territory) associated with the customs office responsible for clearing the goods for entry into Canada. This may not always be the province (or territory) into which the goods physically entered the country, or the province in which the goods are ultimately consumed.
  7. Exports by province are based on the concept of province of origin, or province of production.
  8. Under the “by product” function on the provincial view, in the product table at the right, “..” means no data were reported for that specific data point, while a zero (0) means that there are data, but they were rounded to zero. Data in this table are in millions of dollars.
  9. On a customs basis, it is the country of origin that determines the trading partner from which the goods were imported. For exports, the trading partner is based on the country of final destination.
  10. In the import view of the world map, Canada is showing some significant values as a country of origin for imports into Canada. This is normal and legitimate as products of Canadian origin can sometimes return to Canada without being materially transformed in another country.
  11. The countries displayed in the world map are countries identified as Canada’s trading partners. This definition may not always align with other standard definitions of sovereign countries.
  12. The tree map visualization provides data for Canada’s 27 Principal Trading Partners (PTPs) down to the NAPCS Group level of detail. This level of detail offers an extra layer of analysis to users while insuring an optimal performance of the tool.
  13. If a country shows “no data”, it is either because no trade was reported between Canada and that country, or because the data of the country was incorporated into the data of another country. The countries that have their data incorporated with another country are listed below:
