This paper investigates the evolution of industrial structure in Canadian manufacturing and its relationship to technological change. It does so by examining the extent to which plants that make greater use of advanced technologies experience higher growth in market share and productivity. Using recent survey data on technology use at the plant level, the study finds that establishments that had adopted advanced manufacturing technologies by the end of the 1990s, particularly network communications technologies, had superior productivity growth throughout the decade. In turn, gains in relative productivity were accompanied by gains in market share.
