CANSIM table 080-0032 (Retail Trade) - more recent numbers available?

A student is looking for 2015 and 2016 numbers for CANSIM table 080-0032: Retail trade, total sales and e-commerce sales, by North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) annual (dollars x 1,000).

Since the Daily article for this CANSIM table is dated July 2016 (, I suspect that 2014 is the most recent data available. The information for the Annual Retail Trade Survey appears to corroborate this presumption.

“Nothing is available from the annual program for 2015 and 2016 as we have not published these results as of yet.”

They did inform us that the tentative release date for those years is the end of March 2017.
