Canada: Ivey PMI ticks up in June

In June, the Ivey Purchasing Managers Index (PMI), prepared by the Richard Ivey School of Business, ticked up 0.6 points to land at 63.1 points. June’s reading, which came in above analysts’ expectations of a 61.0-point outturn, was still elevated by recent historical standards. Furthermore, the seasonally-adjusted index remained comfortably above the 50-point threshold that separates expansion from contraction in purchasing activity at Canadian firms.

Along with the PMI, Ivey produces four other business-related indices, and their readings outlined a slower expansion in June. Most notably, all but the prices index fell. Inventories rose at a slower pace, while supplier delivery times continued to lengthen. Meanwhile, the employment index dipped only slightly—roughly in line with Statistics Canada’s strong jobs report for June, which nonetheless saw the unemployment rate tick up to 6.0%.
