Survey of Employment, Payrolls and Hours
Source: Statistics Canada. Table 14-10-0202-01 (formerly CANSIM 281-0024): Employment by industry, annual. (accessed May 29, 2019).
Note: Employment–includes jobs held by people employed directly in the following industries: forestry and logging, support activities for forestry, pulp and paper product manufacturing, and wood product manufacturing. Natural Resources Canada prefers to use employment data from Statistics Canada’s System of National Accounts (SNA) because these data are linked to the underlying framework used to compile the Canadian System of Natural Economic Accounts (e.g., GDP, national wealth). Employment data can also be sourced from Statistics Canada’s Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the Survey of Employment, Payrolls and Hours (SEPH). The strength of LFS data is their demographic information, and they can be used to capture the level of self-employment in the forest sector. The SEPH focus on industry and can be used for comparing direct company employment in forestry with that in other sectors.
