Statistics Canada says Manufacturing sales climbed higher in August

Mainly attributable to higher sales in the transportation equipment and petroleum/coal products.


OTTAWA — Statistics Canada says manufacturing sales rose 1.6% to $53.5 billion in August, their first move higher after two consecutive monthly declines.

The agency says the increase was mainly attributable to higher sales in the transportation equipment and petroleum and coal product industries.

Sales were up in eight of the 21 industries, representing two-thirds of the manufacturing sector.

Transportation equipment sales climbed 8.2% to $10.4 billion, powered by gains in the motor vehicle and motor vehicle parts industries.

Petroleum and coal product sales increased 3.2% to $4.8 billion.

Sales volume in the manufacturing sector was up 1.2% in August.
