The Canadian Freight Analysis Framework provides a picture of freight flows across the country by geography, commodity and mode of transport. Estimates are available by tonnage, value, and tonne-kilometres. The database can be used to analyze a number of transportation-related matters, such as highway capacity, traffic forecasting, investments in infrastructure, as well as trade flows.

The Canadian Transportation Economic Account (CTEA) provides a comprehensive measure of the transportation sector's role in the Canadian economy. The CTEA will, for the first time, present data from the National Economic Accounts for own-account transportation services produced by non-transportation industries.

The Canadian Transportation System

A healthy Canadian economy is strongly connected to a well-functioning transportation sector. Transportation allows products, services and people to access key markets at home and abroad. This helps create prosperity and economic opportunities. Employment in commercial transport industries accounts for about 5% of Canadian jobs, a share that has remained stable over the past two decades. In 2016, Canada's combined total household spending on transportation (including insurance) was $179.5 billion – second only to shelter, in terms of major spending categories. Household spending for personal travel accounted for about 10% of GDP. Read more about the Canadian Transportation System.
