Description Canadian Business Patterns (CBP) data count the number of businesses "establishments", by North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS, tables at the 2, 3, 4, and 6 digit level), and by employment size ranges (including "indeterminate"). CBP allows users to understand the count, number of workers, and industry, of businesses within a given Census geography. For further information on "establishments", see Page 8 of this Statistics Canada guide.
