Exports of engines and parts (-84.0%) also fell significantly in April. In addition to disruptions in the Canadian engine and parts manufacturing industry, motor vehicle production shutdowns in the US contributed to the decrease in Canadian deliveries of engines and parts to American assembly plants in April.

Exports plummeted to both the US (-35.7%) and to countries other than the US (-11.7%), mostly Germany, the UK and Mexico.
