Canada Manufacturing PMI  2011-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The IHS Markit Canada Manufacturing PMI fell to 54.8 in September of 2018 from 56.8 in August, well below market expectations of 56.6. The reading pointed to the slowest growth in factory activity since December, as production was the weakest in five months due to a combination of capacity constraints and subdued demand conditions. Also, new work was the weakest in in eleven months as global trade frictions continued to hold back export sales growth; and backlogs of work fell for the first time since August of 2017. On the other hand, employment increased amid greater business investment and forthcoming new product launches and input inflation eased. Near-term growth expectations slipped to the lowest so far this year due to concerns about global trade frictions, alongside a lack of suitably skilled candidates to fill vacancies at their plants. Manufacturing PMI in Canada is reported by Markit Economics.
