Funded Projects

Both pollution and climate change are known to negatively impact the health and productivity of workers. Research has primarily focused on how these factors affect outcomes of developing countries and the agricultural sector. Little is known about the impact of air pollution and climate change on manufacturing plants’ in developed countries. In developed countries such as Canada, the agricultural sector accounts for a small share (6.6 %) of gross domestic product (GDP) relative to that of the manufacturing sector (approximately 11 %). The purpose of this research is to study how the productivity of Canadian manufacturing plants is affected by the interaction of temperature and air pollution. While both temperature and pollution individually affect manufacturing plants’ outcomes, a mix of both could amplify these affects.

Additional data set: National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI)

Despite half a century of experience with environmental regulation in Europe and North America, there is still much debate over the likely impacts of environmental regulation. For example, many believe that regulation comes at the cost of economic growth in the regulated region and these costs outweigh any potential environmental benefit. While the regulation does have costs, it is important to understand the trade-offs between these costs and environmental benefits. This research is designed to help inform policymakers and the public about the costs and benefits of climate policy, by quantifying the productivity impact of British Columbia’s carbon tax in the manufacturing sector.

The aim of the project is research the development and behavior of firms that operate in an economy affected by natural resource development and exploitation. Østenstad and Vermeulen (2016) provide a theoretical model that gives rise to various hypotheses surrounding the development of firms and their export decision in an economy that has the benefit of a natural resource windfall. The current project will apply this theoretical model to the Canadian case and data and test the hypotheses that come from the theoretical model.

The main research question is:
How are firms affected by an economy that experiences resource windfalls in terms of their sales, employment, wage costs, and export sales?

We aim to test the following hypotheses: Focusing on the non-resource related firms in a natural resource based economy, the expansion of natural resource production will lead to:

  • An expansion of manufacturing firms, in terms of new establishment, total sales and employment,
  • An expansion of the number of firms, who on average will have a relatively lower productivity
  • An increase in the observed average productivity among exporters and a decrease among non-exporters

We would like to further confirm the model’s mechanism that gives rise to an ambiguous effect on total export sales. Whereas the expansion of the entire sector should allow for more exporting firms, the increase in marginal costs will lead to a smaller share of firms that export. The data may further allow to observe how the size of the effect is related to the size of the natural resource sector, the distance from this sector and the regional government expenditures.

Does the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement (CUSFTA) reduce resource misallocation in Canada? The implementation of CUSFTA can be viewed as a natural experiment which makes it ideal for estimating the causal effect of trade policy on the misallocation of resources. To do this, I use both static and dynamic panel models with data from the Annual Surveys of Manufactures (ASM) for the period 1980 to 1996. I use tariff rates from Trefler (2004) and measure resource misallocation using the dispersion in revenue total factor productivity (TFPR). This study sheds light on how reversion back to CUSFTA following a collapse of NAFTA might impact productivity in Canada due to changes in resource misallocation.

This study investigates the impact of the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (FTA) on price dispersion in Canada. The impact of trade reforms on producer price dispersion is not straightforward: while increased competition would be expected to alleviate price differences by favoring the most productive firms, access to new markets alongside product differentiation may allow producers to charge more disperse prices.

This project studies the impact of environmental regulation on the manufacturing sector. It examines how firms' strategic responses affect economic outcomes, which in turn affect the cost of regulation and the ability to achieve policy goals. First, this project quantifies some of these effects by estimating the impact of Canadian air quality regulation on plant level outcomes including: productivity, output, input use, emissions, likelihood-of-exit, investment, and capital stock. Second, this project studies the link between regulation induced shifts in firms' production/investment location choices, and productivity. These location choices can increase the cost of regulation by affecting productivity via changes in agglomeration economies, which suggests that changes to the regulation could be more efficient at reducing pollution.

This project aims at evaluating the efficiency of Canadian energy conservation program also called CIPEC program. CIPEC program is a voluntary program which consist at encouraging firms to manage their energy use more efficiently. Through CIPEC reports, it has been highlighted that many firms have been able to reduce their energy waste through the change of attitude or by upgrading machines that are more energy efficient. CIPEC program offers a setting where members share successful experience between them in order to be more energy efficient. To date, there is no a proper evaluation of this program since its launch in 1975. We aim to fill this gap by investigating the direct and indirect effect of this program on its members.

This paper analyzes the effects of extreme temperature on manufacturing output using a dataset covering the universe of manufacturing establishments in Canada from 2004 to 2012. Extreme temperature can affect manufacturing activity by affecting separately or jointly labour productivity and labour inputs. Using a panel fixed effects method, our results suggest a non linear relationship between outdoor extreme temperature and manufacturing output. Each day where outdoor mean temperatures are below -18C or above 24C reduces annual manufacturing output by 0.18% and 0.11%, respectively, relative to a day with mean temperature between 12C to 18C. In a typical year, extreme temperatures, as measured by the number of days below -18C or above 24C, reduce annual manufacturing output by 2.2%, with extreme hot temperatures contributing the most to this impact. Given the predicted change in climate for the mid and end of century, we predict annual manufacturing output losses to range between 2.8 to 3.7% in mid-century and 3.7 to 7.2% in end of century.

This study investigates whether the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (CUSFTA) reduced resource misallocation in Canada. The implementation of CUSFTA can be viewed as a natural experiment, which makes it an ideal setting for estimating the causal effect of trade policy on the misallocation of resources. I perform this estimation using a dynamic panel data model with data from the Canadian Annual Surveys of Manufactures (ASM) for the period from 1980 to 1996. I use tariff rates from Trefler (2004) and measure resource misallocation using the dispersion in revenue total factor productivity (TFP) within industries. I find that CUSFTA did reduce resource misallocation by approximately four percent and, consequently, increased TFP by around four percent in Canada. This increase in TFP translates into a contribution of 23 percent to the overall TFP growth of Canada's manufacturing sector.

This paper studies the effects of plant control changes on plant survival. A unique feature of the paper is that it groups new born plants as born-domestic and born-foreign, and groups plant control changes as foreign acquisitions and domestic acquisitions, and then analyzes the effects of foreign acquisitions and domestic acquisitions on the duration of born-domestic and born-foreign plants respectively. The differentiation of acquisitions and new plants along the foreign-domestic dichotomy helps disentangle ownership effects and acquisition effects, and thus could effectively compare which acquisition works better for which type of plants. Using 26 cohorts of plants born in Canada between 1973 and 1998, the paper finds that both foreign acquisitions and domestic acquisitions significantly increase life durations of born-domestic plants, although domestic acquisitions generate larger effects. For born-foreign plants, acquisitions do not seem to change their life durations.
