Canada: PMI moderates in January

February 7, 2017

The Ivey Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), sponsored by the Richard Ivey School of Business and the Purchasing Management Association of Canada, decreased a seasonally-adjusted 3.6 points in January, falling from 60.8 in December to 57.2. Markets had expected a milder decline to 58.3. The volatile index is now pointing toward the 50-threshold that distinguishes between expansion from contraction in the manufacturing sector.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists see flat growth in industrial production in 2017, which is up 0.2 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2018, the panel expects industrial production growth of 1.8%.
