Future Productivity Growth in Canada: The Role of the Service Sector
AbstractIn the third and final article in the Symposium included in this volume on Future Productivity Growth in Canada, Benoît Robidoux from Finance Canada observes that there has been a structural improvement in labour productivity growth in Canada since 1996 and that it is likely that this stronger productivity growth of around 2 per cent per year will continue. He points out that future productivity growth in Canada will increasingly depend on productivity trends in the expanding service sector, and in particular on the ability of this sector to incorporate information and communication technologies into the production process.
