Canada ranks among the 10 leading manufacturing nations.

Most of Canada's manufacturing industry is located in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. Other important manufacturing sectors in Canada include food and beverages, paper and allied products, primary metals, fabricated metals, petrochemicals, and chemicals.

The Atlantic, Prairie, and Pacific regions of Canada have concentrated on establishing their natural resource-based economies such as fishing, forestry, and mining. The Prairie provinces are dependent on agriculture and mineral fuels, while British Columbia's primary industries are forestry and mining, and tourism.

In recent years, Alberta has played an increasingly important role within the Canadian economy due to its abundant natural resources and strong oil and gas sectors. From oil and gas to precious minerals, lumber, and agriculture, the country is rich in natural resources.
