The data presented are forecasts for 2018-2019 to 2020-2021, actual data for
2017-2018 and adjusted data for 2016-2017 and previous
Statistics on the GDP prior to 1981 are based on data provided by the Institut de la
statistique du Québec covering the period of 1961 to 2010. However, this data on nominal GDP are estimates based
on Statistics Canada's 1993 System of National Accounts and differ slightly from the data currently published
for the period of 1981 to 2017, which are based on the 2008 System of National Accounts. Therefore, an
adjustment was made to the data for 1971 to 1980 in order to make them more consistent with the data based on
the 2008 System of National Accounts.
GDP statistics are on a calendar year basis, from January to December. GDP for
2017-2018 thus represents GDP for the period from January 2017 to December 2017.
