Trade Data provides the ability to generate customize reports on Canada's and U.S. trade in goods with over 200 countries.
This site provides customs-based statistics on international trade in goods to help you:
- Find new import or export markets;
- Determine competition for your products;
- Identify domestic opportunities for import replacement;
- Analyse the Canadian domestic market for industries in the manufacturing sector.
- Discover a country's trade balance.
- Find out what products countries are importing, exporting or re-exporting throughout the world.
Total imports include all goods which have entered the country (Canada or the United States) by crossing territorial (customs) boundaries, whether for immediate domestic consumption or for storage in "Customs bonded warehouses".
Import statistics are attributed to their country of origin; that is, the country in which the goods were grown, extracted or manufactured. In instances where the country of origin cannot be determined, transactions are credited to the country of shipment.
Canadian import statistics are collected by the province of clearance; that is, the province (or territory) in which goods were cleared by Customs either for immediate consumption in Canada or for entry into a bonded Customs warehouse. This may not always coincide with the province in which they are consumed.
Total ExportsTotal Exports = Domestic Exports + Re-Exports
Domestic Exports consist of the exports of all goods grown, produced, extracted or manufactured in the (trader) country (Canada or the United States) leaving the country (through Customs) for a foreign destination. Exports of imported merchandise which has been substantially enhanced in value are also included.
Re-Exports (called "Foreign Exports" in the U.S.) refer to the export of goods that have previously entered the country (Canada or the United States) and are leaving in the same condition as when first imported. Exports of imported merchandise which has been minimally processed but not substantially enhanced in value are also counted as re-exports.
Export statistics are attributed to the country which is the last known destination of the goods at the time of export.
Statistics on Canadian domestic exports are collected by province of origin and indicate the province (or territory) in which the goods were grown, extracted or manufactured. This may not always coincide with the province where the goods were cleared by Customs. In the case of re-exports, (where the goods were originally imported into Canada and are being exported in the same condition), the province corresponds to the one from which the goods were shipped.

Full year 2010
Canadian Manufacturing Shipments are available on an annual basis only, based on Statistics Canada's Annual Survey of Manufacturers (ASM). This data series begins in 1990.
The Canadian trade data by product (HS) was updated November 2, 2009 with revisions for the years 1990 to 2003. The changes correct historical inconsistencies related to the integrity between trade data and the underlying metadata and are generally minor in nature. Revisions by NAICS are not available for the period in question.
