The North American Product Classification System (NAPCS) is used to publish international merchandise trade data on a Balance of Payment basis (BOP). The product information in this data visualisation is available at the product "section" and product "group" levels of the NAPCS classification. Some of the section names have been abbreviated to help with the usability of the tool.

The list of 27 principal trading partners (PTPs) is based on their annual share of total merchandise trade – imports and exports – with Canada in 2012. BOP data are derived from customs data by making adjustments for factors such as valuation, coverage, timing and residency. These adjustments are made to conform to the concepts and definitions of the Canadian System of Macroeconomic Accounts.

Unless otherwise stated, data in this data visualisation tool are on a BOP basis and are seasonally adjusted. Reference to prices in the summary and in the price and volume indices pages are based on Paasche (current-weighted) price indexes (2017=100). The volume index is calculated using the Laspeyres formula (2017=100).

Trade data are revised on an ongoing basis for each month of the current year. Revisions to the previous reference year are published with the release of January, February, March and April data. Revisions to both years prior to the previous year are published with the release of October reference month data.

With the addition of the services section on June 8, 2021, the title of this product has been changed to International trade monthly interactive dashboard to better represent the data contained within the visualization.
