Economy Up 0.1% in April
CBJ — Statistics Canada says real gross domestic product moved up 0.1% in April over the previous month.
The increase came as output of goods-producing industries rose 0.2%.
Gains in the manufacturing and utilities sectors more than offset declines in construction and in mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction.
Activity in the manufacturing sector was up 0.8% in April as the output of both durable and non-durable manufacturing grew.
Services-producing industries were essentially unchanged overall for the month.
