Share This Post

Manufacturing sales were up in seven of 10 provinces in April with Alberta posting the strongest gains, according to Statistics Canada data.

Manufacturing sales in Alberta rose 6.5 per cent to $9.5 billion in April. On a year-over-year basis, total sales in Alberta were 37.6 per cent higher compared to the same month a year ago.

Quebec also posted strong growth with sales climbing 2.1% to $18 billion, the province’s fourth straight monthly advance. The increase was mainly attributable to higher sales in the primary metal and aerospace product and parts industries.

Sales in Ontario were up 1.1% to $30.9 billion in April, the third consecutive monthly increase, with higher sales of motor vehicles and parts driving the gains. With this increase, total sales in Ontario were up 27.2% on a year-over-year basis.

On a negative note, sales in BC declined 2.9% to $5.8 billion in April. This was the province’s first drop in sales since August 2021.
