Cluster Linkages in Canada

This analysis examines how different industries are connected in Canada for each of the 51 traded clusters. It is meant to help policy makers, firms, industry organizations, and research institutions understand how different industries are connected in Canada. 

The analysis introduces the project, its methodology, and compiles the linkages for all 51 traded clusters. Linkages for each of the 51 traded clusters are also available under the Data By Cluster view in the Canadian Cluster Data Portal.
