between 2007 and 2016
1
, the g|oba| aerospaoe seotor |s po|sed for strong growth-
Oanada`s aerospaoe |ndustry, wh|oh |no|udes over 400 frms aoross the oountry and a
h|gh|y sk|||ed workforoe of 82,000, |s we|| equ|pped to p|ay a |ead|ng ro|e |n meet|ng the

ln 2007, Oanada`s aerospaoe output ranked ffth |n the wor|d, as o|v|| manufaoturers
generated revenues of over $17.5 b||||on

Over 80 peroent of Oanada`s domest|o produot|on |s exported wor|dw|de-more than

Th|s benohmark|ng study assesses the oompet|t|veness of a number of Oanad|an o|usters
aga|nst oompet|ng |nternat|ona| bus|ness |ooat|ons. Based on an |nvestor`s perspeot|ve,
the researoh and ana|ys|s uses a representat|ve |nvestment projeot prototype |an operat|on

qua||tat|ve |ooat|on |nd|oators |n the assessment of eaoh |ndustry subseotor.
To assess the qua||ty of a |ooat|on`s operat|ng bus|ness env|ronment, data were oo||eoted
from a var|ety of souroes for the d|fferent subfaotors |n eaoh of the oategor|es featured |n the
operat|ng env|ronment tab|e |page 5ì. Data for the qua||tat|ve assessment were trans|ated

sooreboard approaoh. We|ghts were ass|gned to eaoh |ooat|on oategory and subfaotor
to demonstrate the|r re|at|ve |mportanoe |n the |ooat|on se|eot|on prooess. These we|ghts
are speo|fo to eaoh |ndustry subseotor and are based on lBM-P|l`s exper|enoe |n he|p|ng
