(Our host is looking at a tablet computer and turns toward the camera.)

Hi, I'm Kate. I work for Industry Canada.

If you are looking for information about what is happening in your industry, we can help.

Industry Canada collects and analyzes data about Canadian industries, so businesses like yours can make well informed decisions.

(A series of animations begins as our host speaks. An animation of a chart with an upward trending line appears on an outline map of Canada.)

Understanding a market trend across an entire industry could be crucial to making the most of market opportunities.

(An animation appears showing an office laser printer printing pages with a bar chart, a line graph and then a pie chart.)

To be truly competitive, you need to fully understand your competitors, your customers and the market. This insight could help you predict your competitor's next move and stay ahead.

(A screen shot of our website appears. The web page features the titles "Analyze economic trends," "Access industry profiles and analysis" and "Review financial performance benchmarks.")

Here, you can:

  • Find in-depth, industry-specific analysis and information

(Another web page appears. It is titled: "Review financial performance benchmarks." This transitions to another page view showing the titles "Find companies by industry sector" and "Research small business" and then the Canadian Company Capabilities sign-in page.)

  • Compare your performance against industry averages, and
  • Use Canadian Company Capabilities to find companies you can do business with.
  • You can even add your profile and increase your company's visibility.

(A new screen shot appears as our host speaks. The page shows the "Just for businesses" tab and then transitions to the website.)

If you need information on government services for business, Canada Business has it all. Visit by clicking "For business" or visit

Research to help you grow and compete: it's part of what we do for you.
