In Canada, Manufacturing Sales provides a current 'snapshot' of sales of goods manufactured values by the Canadian manufacturing sector, enabling analysis of the state of the Canadian economy, as well as the health of specific industries in the short- to medium-term.

Latest Updates

Canada's manufacturing sales retreated 0.6 percent from a month earlier to CAD 57.9 billion in May of 2021, following a downwardly revised 1.7 percent drop in April and missed preliminary estimates of a 1.0 percent rise. It was the second straight month of declines, mainly weighed down by the machinery (-16.9 percent), chemical products (-2.0 percent), and fabricated metal (-1.8 percent) industries. Additionally, sales also fell in the food (-0.6 percent), non-metallic mineral (-2.9 percent), and motor vehicle parts (-1.4 percent) industries. In contrast, sales advanced at a record pace in the wood product industry (6.1 percent), due to higher prices. Excluding the effect from the transportation equipment industry, sales were down 0.7 percent, breaking a 12-month period of increases. On an annual basis, total sales surged 42.6 percent, due to baseline effects.
