  • Notes

    The data in this section comes from Statistics Canada's Annual Survey of Manufactures and Logging. Changes in domestic production within a particular subsector will depend on a variety of factors such as evolving international export markets, trends in consumer demand and patterns of consumption, competition with imports in the domestic market, economic conditions which affect production (including labour costs), profitability, and so on. Technological changes can impact an industry segment by affecting consumer demand, the cost of production and competition within the industry.

    The manufacturing intensity ratio, calculated by dividing manufacturing value-added by manufacturing revenues, gives a sense of how much transformation takes place within an industry and what proportion of value is added.

    In short, manufacturing value-added consists of the value of manufacturing revenues plus net change in the inventory of goods in process and finished goods, less the costs of materials and supplies and of the energy, water and vehicle fuel used.
