Canada Recovers from Sluggish Second Half of 2012 with Strong First Quarter

Friday, May 31, 2013 > 13:16:18


Solid exports helped Canada's economy grow at a higher-than-expected annualized rate of 2.5% in the first quarter, the fastest pace in six quarters, after a sluggish second half of 2012, Statistics Canada said on Friday.

Export volumes jumped by a non-annualized 1.5% following four weak quarters in 2012, as goods exports, mainly energy products, non-metallic minerals and consumer goods, posted gains. Imports rose by 0.3%. Mining and oil and gas extraction was the main source of industrial growth for the second straight quarter.

On a monthly basis, Canada's economy grew by 0.2% in March from February, as mining, quarrying and oil and gas extraction helped outweigh declines in manufacturing and wholesale trade.
