OTTAWA, Ont. — In November, Canadian manufacturers delivered products worth about $49 billion, a slight increase from Octobers numbers.
At about a 2% increase from the previous month, the November increase is attributed to an exceptional month from the transportation equipment sector, which improved after hitting its lowest level of third quarter results in about two years.
Factoring in price fluctuations, Novembers shipments were the largest single monthly constant-dollar increase in 15 months. For the course of the year, volume shipments have declined about 1.5% between January and November 2006, when compared to the previous year.
