Statistics Canada has announced the release of the 2012 version of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Canada.
NAICS 2012 information is now included in OC Library’s Industry Research Guide. The guide will retain NAICS 2007 information, as there will likely be a transitional period.
“The North American Classification System (NAICS) is a system for classifying production units by type of economic activity. It was developed by the statistical agencies of Canada, Mexico and the United States in order to facilitate the collection, tabulation, analysis and dissemination of industry statistics and allow three-country uniformity and comparability of such data. NAICS is also widely used by government agencies, trade associations, public and private sector businesses and various other organizations.” – Statistics Canada.
