Working Paper Number 18, Regional Disparities in Canada: Characterization, Trends and Lessons for Economic Policy, November 1997

The aim of the present study is to examine the history of Canada's regional disparities through empirical analysis in line with the new wave of studies focussing on convergence and economic growth. It looks at regional disparities in per-capita production, productivity, employment rates and the participation rate. By assessing the speed of convergence of productivity and other economic indicators between Canada's regions we can assess barriers to regional development and guide regional development policy.
