In this article, we will share the charts and data for the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) related indicators of Canada. We will provide the charts and data for Canada’s Nominal GDP, Nominal GDP per capita, GDP on a Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) basis, GDP PPP per capita, and Real GDP Growth. We will present the charts and data for these indicators during the 40-year period from 1980 to 2020. We have used the publicly available data from International Monetary Fund (IMF). The data for 2019 and 2020 are estimates by IMF staff.

In the charts, we have added information about the prime minister of Canada leading the government during the different time periods. This can help us relate the GDP indicator data during a particular time period with the prime minister of Canada leading the government. The table below provides information on the prime ministers of Canada from 1980 to 2018 and their term of office.
