The Monthly Wholesale Trade Survey presents estimates of monthly sales for wholesale merchants in Canada, providing information on the performance of the wholesale trade sector as an important indicator of the health of the Canadian economy. In addition, the business community uses the data to analyse market performance.

Latest Updates

Wholesale sales in Canada likely advanced by 1.4 percent month-over-month in October of 2021, following a 1.0 percent rise in the previous month, preliminary estimates showed. It was the best monthly performance in the sector since March, reflecting higher sales in the motor vehicle and motor vehicles parts and accessories subsector (+9.0%), as well as stronger sales figures in the miscellaneous goods (+2.2%) and the building materials and supplies (+2.0%) subsectors. On the other hand, significant headwinds continued to subdue sales of farm products (-6.1%) and to a lesser extent, sales of food, beverage, and tobacco products (-1.3%).
