Canadian Manufacturing Sales - June 16, 2018

Canadian manufacturing sales fell 1.3 per cent on a monthly basis in April, dragged lower by a third straight month of declining sales of petroleum and coal products and a drop in transportation equipment shipments.  Sales were down in 10 of 21 manufacturing sub-sectors, representing about half of total manufacturing sales.  On a year-over-year basis, Canadian manufacturing sales were up 3.6 per cent over April 2017.

In BC,  manufacturing sales were down 0.1 per cent on a monthly basis but were up 7.6 per cent year-over-year. A strong forestry sector, particularly paper manufacturing, continues to be a significant driver of BC's manufacturing sales. That strength helped offset some weakness in sectors like machinery and equipment manufacturing and coal products.
