Net new issues of securities by corporations and federal government enterprises: Industrial classification (formerly K9) was previously named Net new issues of corporate securities: Industrial classification (K9).

Bond values are shown at par value.

Bonds include issues of Canadian corporations, payable in Canadian and foreign currencies, placed in Canada and abroad. Issues payable in foreign currencies have been converted into Canadian dollars using the average exchange rate for the last business day of the month.

Stocks include common and preferred stocks issued by Canadian corporations in Canada and abroad.

For the years before 1980 several stock issues, generally of less than $1 million, are not classified by industry but are included in the total. For those years, therefore, the components do not add up to the total.

Classification by industry is generally based on the 1980 Standard Industrial Classification published by Statistics Canada.

Most holding companies are classified as financial companies.

Agriculture, fishing, trapping, logging and forestry industries are included in the service and other industry category.
