Canadian Manufacturing Sales - September 19, 2017

Canadian manufacturing sales declined for a second consecutive month, falling 2.6 per cent in July. The dip in sales was largely due the motor vehicle and parts sector while sales were up in 12 of 21 manufacturing sub-sectors.
 
In BC, manufacturing sales decreased 1.6 per cent on a monthly basis but were up 7 per cent year-over-year. Year-to-date, BC manufacturing sales are up close to 8 per cent over 2016, led by strong contributions from a diverse range of industries from wood and paper products to food manufacturing to machinery and equipment. A strong trade and manufacturing sector is helping to propel employment and economic growth around the province, which further supports robust housing demand in BC.
