Month-over-month / Year-over-year


In  Canada July 2020, seasonally adjusted Manufacturing Shipments (flash estimate) increased 8.7 per cent to $53.0 billion over June 2020, and decreased 7.2 per cent over July 2019.

Manufacturing shipments (flash estimate) in July 2020 are 5.6 per cent below February 2020.



This flash estimate is a special product published in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic to provide Canadians with timely information on the manufacturing sector. The official estimate of manufacturing sales for the month of July, which will be based on a more complete set of survey and administrative data, is scheduled for release on September 15.

The percentage change is calculated using seasonally adjusted data and is expressed in current dollars.
