Our Services

Canadian Industrial Outlook Reports

These are in-depth, biannual economic outlook reports with a five-year forecast for key economic and financial indicators for nearly 20 major Canadian sectors. They provide a detailed analysis of the latest developments and trends affecting industries at the national and provincial levels.

Canadian Industrial Profiles

These brief two-page profiles are designed for smaller industries not covered by our Industrial Outlook service. Published annually, the profiles include an industrial SWOT analysis and a five-year forecast of key economic indicators and industry trends.
