StatsCanada logo

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.
