Canadian Manufacturing Sales - September 18, 2018

Canadian manufacturing sales increased for a third consecutive month, rising 0.9 per cent on a monthly basis in July. Sales were higher in 11 of 21 manufacturing sub-sectors, representing 68 per cent  of manufacturing sales.

In BC, where the manufacturing sector employs about 170,000 people,  manufacturing sales fell 1.7 per cent on a monthly basis but were 10 per cent higher year-over-year. Manufacturing in BC has maintained robust growth this year, particularly in the forestry sector. That growth is providing a boost to markets around the province in which the forestry sector is a major employer.
