Canada Capacity Utilization  1987-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

Canadian industries operated at 82.2 percent of their production capacity in the fourth quarter of 2016, up from a downwardly revised 81.6 percent in the previous period. Capacity utilization rose for the second time, reaching the highest since the last three months of 2014. The mining and quarrying industry led the increase due to a significant gain in support activities for mining and oil and gas extraction. It went up 5 percentage points to 73.9 percent, the largest gain since the third quarter of 2011. Increases in capacity utilization in mining, quarrying and oil and gas extraction and construction and in non-durable goods manufacturing more than offset declines in durable goods manufacturing, electric power generation, transmission and distribution, and forestry and logging. Capacity Utilization in Canada averaged 83.06 percent from 1987 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 87.30 percent in the first quarter of 1988 and a record low of 72.70 percent in the second quarter of 2009.
