Canada Productivity  1981-2016 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast | News

Labour productivity in Canada increased 1.2 percent on quarter in the third of 2016 and above market expectations of 1 percent rise. Although this was the highest rate of growth since the second quarter of 2014, the increase in productivity reflects a rebound in business output following a decline in the second quarter (-0.2 percent, as output was disrupted by the forest fires in northern Alberta and scheduled maintenance shutdowns in the oil and gas extraction industry). Productivity in goods-producing businesses rose 2.7 percent (-1.2 percent in Q2), led by significant gains in mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction (+8 percent) and manufacturing (+1 percent). Productivity in service-producing businesses went up 0.6 percent, a fourth consecutive quarterly increase, driven by arts (+3.2 percent), professional services (+2.1 percent) and accommodation and food services (+2 percent). Meanwhile, hours worked continued to decrease, but at a slower pace than in the previous period. Productivity in Canada averaged 88.62 Index Points from 1981 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 107.88 Index Points in the fourth quarter of 2014 and a record low of 69.08 Index Points in the third quarter of 1981.
