The IHS Markit Canada Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index™ measures the performance of the manufacturing sector. The Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index is based on five individual indexes with the following weights: New Orders (30 percent), Output (25 percent), Employment (20 percent), Suppliers’ Delivery Times (15 percent) and Stock of Items Purchased (10 percent), with the Delivery Times index inverted so that it moves in a comparable direction. A reading above 50 indicates an expansion of the manufacturing sector compared to the previous month; below 50 represents a contraction; while 50 indicates no change.

Latest Updates

The IHS Markit Canada Manufacturing PMI rose to 57.2 in July of 2021 from 56.2 in the previous month, pointing to the 14th straight month of expansion of factory activity. At the same time, it was the fourth strongest in the survey's history. New orders and output rose sharply, underpinned by improved demand domestically and internationally, particularly in the US and Europe. Meanwhile, despite rising for the 14th consecutive month and beating the long-term average, the pace of job creation moderated slightly amid struggles to find skilled replacements for voluntary leavers. Ongoing severe supply chain constraints and raw material shortages remained the main causes behind historic increases in backlogs of work and lead times. In response, companies added to pre-production inventories at the 2nd quickest rate on record, which fueled input price inflation to a fresh series high. Lastly, outlook reflected the strong demand environment, both of which improved starkly in August.
