In the last century, the impressive growth of the manufacturing, mining, and service sectors has transformed the nation from a largely rural economy into one primarily industrial and urban.

 INTRODUCTION
Economic history after the fashion of the German School focuses on consequences of the nature and evolution of very long run factors; that is, of values, institutions, geography, and technology.
Because replacement of the Staple Thesis as an explanation of the substance of Canadian economic development is the goal of the present history, its method is not that of the New Economic History, but that of the historical economics of Innis and Easterbrook.
From the very beginning, the strength of institutions, particularly institutions of land tenure, and the thrust of technological advance, have brought the Canadian economy to its present disintegration under the forces of regionalism and continentalism.
