Usage Considerations

This release incorporates revisions to the Provincial and Territorial Economic Accounts for 2020 and 2021 and provides new data for 2022. Estimates of provincial and territorial gross domestic product (GDP) by industry from 1997 to 2022 were also revised. Both incorporate 2020 benchmark provincial and territorial supply and use tables, as well as revisions to the national income and expenditure accounts.

In addition to incorporating the 2020 benchmark provincial and territorial supply and use tables, this release also includes various updated source data, including, but not limited to: T4 benchmark data for 2021 and preliminary estimates for 2022, revised data from the Retail Commodity Survey and the International Trade in Services Survey, and the actual 2021 and the preliminary 2022 estimates of capital expenditures from the Annual Capital and Repair Expenditures Survey.

Revised volume estimates and updated international trade classification

With this release, the reference year for all GDP volume and price estimates has been updated to 2017=100. Subsequent releases, including the quarterly GDP program and Capital stock program, will follow the new 2017=100 reference year. In addition, the international trade classification has been updated to the 2022 North American Product Classification System.

At certain times of the year, Canada totals in the provincial and territorial GDP by Income and Expenditure Accounts (IEA) do not correspond to the national GDP by IEA estimates. The two accounts are brought back in line when annual revisions are incorporated with the third quarter release (November 30, 2023).

Percentage changes for expenditure-based statistics (such as household spending, exports and imports) are calculated from volume measures adjusted for price variations.
