International Trade Flows (S-Level aggregation)


Good morning, everyone.

I have a PhD student who is using provincial I-O multipliers (S-level), and he would like corresponding import and export between the US & the Canadian provinces - also at the S-level aggregation (25 industries). I'm able to find various almost-perfect numbers, but nothing which provides everything he needs. The closest we've come is Industry Canada's Trade Data Online site; however, it only provides about 8 or 10 of the industries he needs.

He's willing to entertain the possibility of purchasing a custom table, but ideally he'd prefer to get the data at no cost. If this is not possible, could you send me the name of someone he could contact to get an estimate?

Thanks for any suggestions.


The International Trade Division can provide import and export data by NAICS code but there would be a fee for this service. I will send you contact details for this off list.

Our contacts suspect that the data available in Industry Canada's Trade Data Online may meet your user's needs and suggested that you look at the NAICS codes listed under "Browse List" in the "Industry Search" scroll down menu. If these aren't specific enough, the student may wish to request a quote for custom data.

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
