Business dynamics

The Longitudinal Employment Analysis Program (LEAP) is a database that contains annual employment information for each employer business in Canada. The information in LEAP is generated from the annual statements of remuneration paid (T4 slips) that Canadian businesses are required to issue to their employees for tax purposes. LEAP is the primary source of information on job dynamics in Canada. The main objective of the program is to produce statistics on number of firms by life status (entrant, incumbents and exits) as well as rates of gross job creation, gross job destruction, and net job growth. Estimates are available at industrial and provincial levels, as well as for different enterprise size categories.
