SAP Canada: Economic Impacts

Economic Consulting Team

Oxford Economics

This report investigates the economic contribution of SAP Canada. SAP Canada’s direct contribution to the Canadian economy was estimated at nearly C$900 million in GDP terms in calendar 2021. After allowing for impacts down the supply chain and consumer spending, its total contribution to Canadian GDP was estimated at C$1.3b. SAP Canada directly employed 3,100 Canadian workers in 2021 while supporting 6,900 workers across the economy as a whole. SAP Canada is a highly productive firm, with worker productivity well over two times the Canadian average. This means that SAP is making an outsized contribution to growing Canadian living standards over time. 46% of SAP’s Canadian workforce is engaged in Development work and this shows through in its R&D effort. SAP Canada’s R&D spending of C$400m equated to 4.2% of Canada’s entire in-house R&D in calendar 2021.
