Moreover, the industry has generated over 151,000 jobs and put over $15B into government coffers. Another way of looking at the economic contribution is that for every $1.00 of revenue or capital expenditure the industry adds $1.09 to Canada's GDP which shows a positive return which all successful industries need to have.
