Canada’s economy is made up of many different industries. There are three main types of industries in Canada: 1) Natural resources 2) Manufacturing 3) Services
These include forestry, fishing, agriculture, mining and energy. These industries have played an important part in the country’s history and development. Today, the economy of many areas of the country still depends on developing natural resources. Fort Mac - Mining PEI Farming – Agriculture NFLD - Fishing
This involves making products to sell in Canada and around the world. Manufactured products include paper, technological equipment, automobiles, food, clothing and many other goods. Our largest international trading partner is the United States.
Service industries provide thousands of different jobs in areas like transportation, education, health care, construction, banking, communications and government. More than 70 percent of working Canadians now have jobs in service industries.
We can also break industries into the following sectors: 1) Primary Industries 2) Secondary Industries 3) Tertiary Industries
The primary sector of industry generally involves the conversion of natural resources into primary products. Most products from this sector are considered raw materials for other industries. Major businesses in this sector include agriculture, agribusiness, fishing, forestry and all mining and quarrying industries.
The secondary sector of industry includes those economic sectors that create a finished, usable product: manufacturing and construction. This sector of industry generally takes the output of the primary sector and manufactures finished goods or products to a point where they are suitable for use by other businesses, for export, or sale to domestic consumers.
This is the segment of the economy that provides services to its consumers. This includes a wide range of businesses including financial institutions, schools, transports and restaurants. The tertiary industry is split into two main categories. The first is made up of companies that are in the business of making money, such as those in the financial industry. The second comprises the non-profit segment, which includes services such as education.

How industries perform affect how our economy performs. One of the measures we use to determine economic performance is by calculating ‘Gross Domestic Product’ aka GDP.
GDP measures the value of good and services that the country’s citizens produce. GDP is reported quarterly and is used to measure economic growth or decline.
OTTAWA - The economy grew faster than expected in November, rising 0.3% after a tepid 0.1% rise in October and no gain in September, Statistics Canada said on Thursday. The median forecast in a Reuters survey of economists was for a 0.2% rise, though eight of the 21 analysts surveyed predicted an increase of at least 0.3%. Taken to the second decimal place, the rise was 0.28%. The data was adjusted for seasonal factors such as Christmas shopping. First posted: Thursday, January 31, 2013 09:30 AM EST
