Suggested Dataset: UN Register of Conventional Arms - Canada Archive

Global Affairs Canada
Canada submits an annual report to UNROCA each year.

At maximum: one table for Major conventional arms exports and imports, Small Arms exports and imports, and Light Weapons exports and imports. Then one table for Military Holdings and National Production. Each of the above tables should include the data for all available years, and have a year column to show which year each row of data is for.

The creation of a second dataset could lead to two contradictory datasets if the two datasets are not updated at the same time in the same fashion. Given the foregoing, we suggest the requestor become more familiar with the UNROCA website.
