Canadian Economy Grew 0.1% in April on Services

Friday, June 28, 2013 > 12:16:39


Canada's economy grew by 0.1% in April from March – the fourth consecutive month-on-month advance – on gains by service industries, Statistics Canada said on Friday.

The modest increase matched analysts' expectations. The Bank of Canada forecasts that second-quarter growth on an annualized basis will be 1.8%, down from the 2.5% in the first quarter.

The output of service industries expanded by 0.3% in April. Goods production fell by 0.3% on a decline in mining, quarrying and oil and gas extraction.

Wholesale trade and retail trade advanced by 0.6% and 0.5%, respectively, while the finance and insurance sector grew by 0.6%.

Manufacturing grew by 0.2% with durable goods output up by 0.5% on gains in computer and electronic products. Non-durable goods production dropped by 0.3% on declines in petroleum and coal products.
