CANSIM

CANSIM (Canadian Socio-economic Information and Management Database) is Statistics Canada's computerized database of time series covering a wide variety of social and economic aspects of Canadian life. 

Major topics include labour, manufacturing, construction, trade, agriculture and finance. Other topics include population estimates, vital statistics, education, justice, and health.
