Canadian Business Patterns contains data that reflects counts of business locations or establishments for a specfic time period by:

  • employment size ranges, including "indeterminate"  
  • geography groupings: province/territory, census division, census subdivision, census metropolitan area and/or census agglomeration
  • industry using the North American Industry Classification System (tables at the 2, 3, 4 and 6-digit level)  or the Standard Industrial Classification (tables at the 1, 2, 3 and 4-digit level)

CBP data is taken from the Business Register, a repository of information on the Canadian business population.
