Canada GDP MoM  1997-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast | News

The Canadian economy contracted 0.1 percent month-over-month in August of 2017 after stalling in July and compared to market expectations of a 0.1 percent rise. It is the first drop in ten months. The manufacturing sector shrank 1 percent, following a 0.2 percent dip in July as both durable and non-durable manufacturing declined. Chemical manufacturing dropped 7.3 percent, its largest decline in 20 years amid capacity losses due to plant maintenance shutdowns and lower demand from export markets for basic chemicals and pharmaceutical and medicinal products. Also, the mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction sector was down 0.8 percent in August, declining for the third consecutive month. Construction fell 0.1 percent and utilities decreased 0.8 percent. On the other hand, expansions were recorded for wholesale trade (0.4 percent); real estate and rental and leasing (0.2 percent); finance and insurance (0.2 percent) and transportation and warehousing (0.2 percent). Leading Economic Index in Canada averaged 0.21 percent from 1997 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 1.20 percent in September of 2003 and a record low of -1.40 percent in December of 2008.
