Canadian business patterns data provide counts of active locations by industry classification and employment size categories for Canada and the provinces/territories. The data are compiled from the Business Register, which is a repository of information on the Canadian business population. Note to readers Data are presented according to the 2011 Standard Geographical Classification, the 2012 North American Industry Classification System and employment size categories. Changes in business industrial classification strategies used by Statistics Canada's Business Register over the past year have created increases in the number of active businesses reported in Canadian Business Patterns. As a result, these data do not represent changes in the business population over time. Statistics Canada advises users not to use these data as a time series.
