Originally published in 2006, Services Industries and the Knowledge-Based Economy is the thirteenth and final title in the series Investment in Canada Research Series, reissued in 2019 and examines services industries in Canada. Accounting for almost three-quarters of both gross domestic product and employment in Canada the services sector has been responsible for most of Canada’s employment creation and much of its productivity growth and the sector is important to the Canadian economy increase. The book examines Canada’s services sector from the 80s up until the book’s publication in the early 2000s. The volume suggests that during this period the industry became more outward oriented, more innovative, more productive, and more skills-intensive. The book seeks to better understand the dynamics of the service economy and to identify the types of policies most likely to sustain the development of a knowledge-based economy. This research volume features the proceedings Industry Canada’s Conference on Services Industries and Knowledge-Based Economy, held in Winnipeg on October 16-18, 2003.
