Esri Business Analyst (Canadian Edition) incorporates comprehensive data from top providers in one powerful, flexible package.  This includes:

Demographic Data

More than 2,800 demographic variables provided by Environics Analytics, including updates for the current year, historic and future projections, are available.  These variables, augmented by 2011 Census of Canada data figures, are aggregated at the province, census division, census subdivision, census metropolitan area, census tract, federal electoral district, postal forward sortation area (FSA) and dissemination area (DA) levels. 

Segmentation Clustering Data

Environics Analytics customer profiling system, PRIZM5, classifies Canadian neighbourhoods into 68 distinct market segments based on the most important drivers of consumer behaviour: demographics, lifestyles, and values. PRIZM5 data is available at the dissemination area (DA) and Census Tract (CT) levels.

Business Data

This database from Infogroup represents the most accurate and up-to-date database of Canadian businesses. It is a proprietary, copyrighted database that contains information on approximately 1.4 million Canadian businesses. Data is compiled from more than 300 yellow page telephone directories and new business listings from public record notices. The database undergoes an annual, complete verification process conducted by telephone. The database provides clients with the ability to obtain non-mailable lists of businesses by trade area based on industry class (SIC and NAICS), employee counts, and sales volume.

Canadian Shopping Centre Data

Canadian Directory of Shopping Centres, compiled by Rogers Publishing and provided by Environics Analytics, offers a national file of major shopping centres containing information such as centere name, address and intersection, centre type and anchor tenants, year opened, total store count, parking spaces, and gross leasable area (GLA). This database contains the most current and comprehensive shopping centre data available.

Canadian Street Map Data

Canadian street map data compiled from Esri Streetmap Premium (based on data from HERE, formerly NAVTEQ), provides a nationwide basemap for visualization, routing and drive-time analysis. Users also have the option to incorporate their own maps or those available through ArcGIS Online.

A wealth of additional Canadian business, demographic, customer survey and mapping data is available as add-ons to Esri Business Analyst products.  Please contact your local Esri Canada office to discuss your specific needs.
