Please note: Each historical industry profile is archived, but only a portion of the profiles are updated each month. All receive updated Human Resources statistics, Economic Statistics and Information, and Industry Indicators; the majority receive a new Quarterly Industry Update paragraph. Once a year they are reviewed in full.

Any report before June 2013 will have the correct date in the file name but could have a nonmatching date within the report. If that's the case, the file name date is correct.

Historical Canadian Industry Profiles will be added in the future.

(All Profiles are delivered to the buyer either via email in PDF format or are downloadable from the website.)
