Welcome to our FREE bankruptcy
To find out how many businesses went
bankrupt in your industry between January and December 2002:
- Select your sector from the drop-down list
- Choose your specific industry code
We have also provided the total number of
establishments in your industry as of December 2002. This is to help
you put into perspective the number of bankruptcies in relation to the total
number of businesses in an industry. For example an industry with 3
bankruptcies out of 15 businesses is a source of greater concern than one
with 150 bankruptcies out of 14,000 businesses.
The industries are organized by SIC (1980)
code. For full definitions see the
Statistics Canada web site.
The data is based on statistics from the
Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy. Contact them for more
details and further information.
Please note: Only a small percentage
of businesses that cease operations actually declare bankruptcy. This
data should not be used to determine failure rates.
