Standard Industrial Classification - Establishments (SIC-E) 1980
Status: This standard was replaced by a new departmental standard on November 21, 2011.
The SIC-E is a system for classifying establishments according to their primary activity. It is used to facilitate the collection, tabulation, presentation and analysis of production and related data. As a reference manual, the SIC-E provides a classification structure; a classified index, which includes industry definitions and examples to clarify the content of each industry; an alphabetical index, comparison tables between this and the previous SIC; as well as an introduction specifying the concepts and definitions underlying the classification and providing a user's guide to the interpretation of the classification.
Please note that the SIC-E has been replaced by NAICS Canada. Once implementation of NAICS Canada is complete, the SIC-E will be discontinued.
