North American Industry Classification System 2012


This is to inform you of the release of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Canada 2012.

NAICS Canada 2012 replaces NAICS Canada 2007.

The 2012 version will be implemented in 2013 to coincide with the integration of Statistics Canada's business surveys into a generalized operational model. The NAICS changes for 2012 were made to account for the changing economies of Canada, Mexico and the United States. They represent a minor revision and all occur at the lower levels of the classification. Various kinds of changes are brought into NAICS for 2012. Among the most notable changes are changes relating to outsourcing of manufacturing production, video game publishers and developers, book publishing exclusive agents, and crafts.

Concordance tables relating NAICS 2012 and NAICS 2007 are also available.
