Canadian Manufacturing Sales End 2014 on an Upswing

Canadian manufacturing sales rose 1.7 per cent in December in spite of a 9.3 per cent fall in sales of petroleum products. Sales were higher in 17 of 21 manufacturing sub-sectors and were 8.6% higher year over year.
In BC, manufacturing employs close to 170,000 people,  manufacturing sales rose 2.9 cent on a monthly basis in December

For all of 2014, BC manufacturing sales grew at a robust rate of 6.7 per cent, the fastest rate of growth since 2011. A continued upswing in manufacturing sales should result in increased  employment and home purchases.
