  • Merchandise Trade with the World

    This is just one year of data and I see now that I’ve mixed up years. Anyway the numbers will fluctuate.

    If you look at our exports we (Canada) basically survive off of auto and oil exports. BC is coal, lumber and pulp. Now if you look at imports, they swamp exports in Ontario and BC!

    “ In 2012, Alberta’s trade with the world was valued at $122.7 billion, comprised of $95.4 billion in exports from Alberta to, and $27.3 billion in imports to the province from, the world”

    Note the the column “Share of total” in the table on page 21

    Table 2.1: Alberta’s Top 20 Exports, $ million




    2.2: Alberta’s Top 20 Commodity and Manufactured Exports to NAFTA-Partners

    It is easier to get an idea of the types of non-energy products among the province’s exports to NAFTA countries if focus is at the four digit level of detail. Therefore Table 2.2, below, shows the importance of Polyethylene, Beef, Fertilizer, and Woodpulp among commodity exports, and Table 2.3,below, highlights the emergence of Machinery Parts, various types of Pumps, Special Machinery, Gas Turbines, Engines and Motors, and Taps and Valves for Pipes as key exports to NAFTA destinations. As such Table 2.3, below, shows the emerging North American integration of the energy sector, with Canadian expertise in pipeline construction and maintenance as well as in specialized pumps being reflected in export success.”
