Status: 'Archived information' is provided for reference, research or recordkeeping purposes. It is not subject to the Government of Canada Web Standards and has not been altered or updated since it was archived. Please "contact us" to request a format other than those available.
This standard was replaced by the 'North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) 1997' as of March 16, 1998.
The 1980 Standard Industrial Classification Structure provides a list of codes and titles of the Divisions, Major Groups, Minor Groups and Classes that are found in the SIC-E.
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Please note that the SIC-E has been replaced by NAICS Canada.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.
