Exports from Canada rose 0.5% month-over-month to CAD 46.8 billion in November of 2020, the highest reading since February, before the coronavirus pandemic. Exports of metal and non-metallic mineral products increased 11.6% in November, mainly on higher exports of unwrought gold, silver and platinum group metals, and their alloys (+25.8%). Increased exports of refined gold to the United Kingdom were behind this surge, resulting from a rise in sales of cast gold bullion bars, as well as higher transfers of gold within the banking system. Exports of metal ores and non-metallic minerals (+26%) also rose significantly, boosted by sales of copper ores (+84.6%) and iron ores (+26.0%). These increases were offset in part by lower exports of motor vehicles and parts (-4.1%), coinciding with lower motor vehicle production in the US. Shipments also fell for forestry products and building and packaging materials (-6.8%), amid lower exports of lumber (-11.6%). source: Statistics Canada
