Exports from Canada inched up 0.6% over a month to a fresh record of CAD 53.7 billion in July, lifted by a broad rise in shipments across most product sections. Sales rose the most for motor vehicles and parts (+6.4%), reflecting lower production output in recent months amid supply issues and the global semiconductor chip shortage. A significant contribution also came from shipments of energy products (+1.9%), which received support from higher prices; electronic and electrical equipment & parts (+7.9%); aircraft and other transportation equipment & parts (+8.3%); basic and industrial chemicals, plastic and rubber products (+4.5%); and industrial machinery, equipment & parts (+4.5%). However, gains were almost offset by a sharp decline in forestry products & building and packaging materials (-12.7%), mainly lumber and other sawmill products (-23.6%), due to lower prices. source: Statistics Canada

Sales rose the most for motor vehicles & parts (+6.4%), reflecting lower production output in recent months amid supply issues and the global semiconductor chip shortage. A significant contribution also came from shipments of energy products (+1.9%), which received support from higher prices; electronic and electrical equipment & parts (+7.9%); aircraft and other transportation equipment & parts (+8.3%); basic and industrial chemicals, plastic and rubber products (+4.5%); and industrial machinery, equipment & parts (+4.5%).

Canada Exports Fall in May
Exports from Canada decreased 1.6% mom to a 5-month low of CAD 49.5 billion in May. Exports declined in 8 of the 11 product sections, with consumer goods (-8.8%) contributing the most to the decline. After more than tripling in April, exports of prepared and packaged seafood products (-46.5%) posted the largest decrease in May. The snow crab fishing season opened earlier this spring, and exports began in April rather than May, which explains the strong opposing monthly movements. Also, exports of motor vehicles and parts decreased 5.8% in May, the seventh decline in the last eight months. Partially offsetting these declines, exports of forestry products and building and packaging materials rose 8.9% to a record $5.2 billion.

Canada Exports Shrink in April
Exports from Canada retreated 1.0% month-over-month to CAD 50.2 billion in April of 2021, mainly weighed down by lower sales of motor vehicles and parts (-18.1% to CAD 5.5 billion), as a global semiconductor supply shortage forced production shutdowns in the auto assembly industry. Additionally, 5 other product sections posted decreases in sales, including energy (-2.5% to CAD 9.3 billion); metal & non-metallic mineral products (-0.3% to CAD 6.1 billion); and farm, fishing & intermediate food products (-3.0% to CAD 4.0 billion). Still, losses were limited by a surge in foreign demand for prepared & packaged seafood products, which underpinned a 14.4% jump in consumer goods to CAD 6.8 billion. Exports to the US went up 1.4% to CAD 37.1 billion, while shipments to most other countries declined, primarily to China (-5.8% to CAD 2.6 billion) and the UK (-12.3% to CAD 1.6 billion).
