Registered author(s):

    The objective of this report is to provide an overview of the evolution of productivity in the natural resources industries in Canada over the last 40 years. This report presents data and discusses trends in labour and total factor productivity for natural resources industries in Canada over the 1961-2000 period. It also examines the major determinants of these trends. Industries covered by the report are: the energy industries, including crude petroleum and natural gas extraction, refined petroleum and coal products, pipeline transport, and gas distribution systems; forest sector industries, including forestry and logging, wood products and paper products; mining; and manufacturing industries involved with the processing of mineral products, including primary metals, non-metallic mineral products, metal fabrication, and motor vehicle parts. The key conclusion of the report is that most natural resources industries have outperformed the all-industries average in terms of both labour productivity and total factor productivity since 1961.
