This chapter describes how the integration of the Canadian Productivity Accounts (CPA) into the Canadian System of National Accounts (CSNA) is used to provide a coherent and consistent set of productivity estimates. It reviews the status of the integration and how the approach adopted by the CPA embodies internationally recommended standard practices for productivity measurement as are laid out in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) productivity manual. This chapter also discusses the benefits of integration and possible extensions of the existing program.
