Document Highlights

  • The beer economy supports 1 out of every 100 jobs in Canada and generates $5.8 billion in government revenues in the form of product, income, and corporate taxes.
  • The brewing industry is over three times larger than the wineries and distilleries industries combined.
  • Beer’s supply chain stretches across the country. Beer consumption in one province supports jobs in many other provinces along its supply chain.
  • The industries that support the beer industry generate multiplier effects. For every $1 spent on beer in Canada, $1.12 in GDP is generated across the country.
  • Increasing Canadian beer exports by $10 million would result in a $10.54-million boost to GDP and would support 70 jobs.
