Local Indicator Database for Economic Analysis
This report identifies where the major industrial clusters exist within Canada and provides indicators of their relative performance. The purpose is to provide a comprehensive overview of the economic landscape of the country and map areas of strengths and weakness in order to inform decisions concerning allocation of public resources. A well-established methodology for identifying and mapping clusters is derived from the work of Spencer et al (2010). The main data sources are the 2011 National Household Survey and a 2011 universal business establishment database acquired from Dun & Bradstreet.
