Excerpt from Directory of the Chemical Industries in Canada as of Date January 1, 1919

At the request of the Honorary Advisory Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics has undertaken a survey of Cana dian Chemical Industries, and the Report herein presented constitutes the first phase of the work. The report consists Of a Directory Of Canadian Chemical Industries which has been compiled from the schedules of the Industrial Census and contains the names, addresses and products Of firms whose products are either chemicals or are the result Of processes involving chemical change. Only the chemical products Of the concerns in question are given, though In some cases many other articles of commerce are manufactured. The list is not regarded as complete, as there are several for which it has not been possible, to date, to verify information. This work will be continued, and a corrected list will be available for subsequent printing, together with more detailed information.

The unprecedented demand for explosives and other munitions of war which are the products Of chemical change, together with the decreased imports of chemical products from European countries, has built up in Canada during the past four years a number Of large industries employing thousands Of workers, and unless many of these factories can find peace-time uses for their war-time products, much Of the advantage we have gained in the way of commercial chemical progress will be lost. Already, many of the plants operated by the Imperial Munitions Board have been closed down, and in some instances dis mantled. There remain, however, many plants in the chemical field, which are still operating, and there is room for yet others. Thus a review of what we have is primarily in order, SO that we may understand wherein we lack and how best to build up a chemical industry compatible with our general industrial needs.
