Canadian industries operated at 80 percent of their production capacity in the second quarter of 2016, down from 81.4 percent in the previous period and below consensus of 81.5 percent. Oil and gas extraction was the main source of the decline in the capacity utilization rate (73.9 percent from 78.1 percent in Q1), largely due to the wildfire in province of Alberta. The construction capacity utilization rate fell for the fifth time in six quarters (83.5 percent from 83.8 percent) and the utilization rate of transportation equipment manufacturing decreased (93.5 percent from 94.6 percent), while electric power generation, transmission and distribution industry capacity utilization rate went up (84.7 percent from 82.8 percent) as a result of increased production. Meantime, manufacturing as a whole fell 1.2 percentage points to 82.2 percent.
