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

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.
