Statistics

We Support Canada’s Economy

The wooden pallet and container manufacturing industry is comprised of establishments engaged in the production of wooden barrels, baskets, boxes, buckets, containers, container parts (shook), crates, drums, skids, pallets, etc.

According to Statistics Canada, there are 489 companies in the Canadian wood packaging sector that generated a total of $820,853,000 in sales in 2016.

In Canada, 80% of the production comes from Quebec and Ontario. 84% is sold into the domestic market while the rest is mainly exported into the United States.

 

Exports

Exports have exceeded imports, in dollars. The United States remains the number one importer. The exports consist of wood packaging sold as a commodity, as opposed to pallets under load (i.e. when you’re shipping something on a pallet). The latter is considered an implement of trade and is therefore not included in the export stats.

Some states have more than doubled their spending in the past two years.

 

 

Salaries

Salaries paid in the Wood Container and Pallet Manufacturing sector are increasing at a faster rate than its mother category (Wood Product Manufacturing sector).
