Trade, Industry & Professional Associations

Association websites and publications are valuable sources of information for industry research. 

For example, if you are researching the hotel industry in Canada you may find useful information through associations related to that industry. 

Here's how:

  • Search google for words that describe your industry, together with the word "association"
  • Once you have found an association website, look for links to industry profile, statistics, research, publications, resources, etc.

These kinds of resources can also be found through LibrarySearch by limiting to content type = trade publication
