Canadian status of audiovisual works of establishment, status
Canadian status of audiovisual work refers to whether or not the audiovisual work has been certified as a Canadian production. Certification based on whether or not the production meets the criteria for a Canadian production set out by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).
Establishment refers to the level in the statistical hierarchy below the company in the Business Register statistical hierarchy, and at which the accounting data required to measure production are available (principal inputs, revenues, salaries and wages). The establishment is defined as the most homogeneous unit of production for which the business maintains accounting records. From these records, it is possible to assemble all the data elements required to compile the gross value of production (total sales or shipments, and inventories), the cost of materials and services, and labour and capital used in production.
