Geographia Polonica (1964) vol. 4, pp. 87-106


The purpose of this paper is to present and appraise procedures usedfor economic regionalization that are currently being applied in Canada.It is concerned with the historical development of research in this field,the criteria used for the delimitation of economic regions, and futureprospects for the development of research on this subject. The "region"in this particular concept is restricted to the use generally made of theterm by statisticians and, therefore, eliminates from discussion all otherconcepts of the "region" used in other contexts.
