Labour productivity of Canadian businesses increased 0.3% in the third quarter of 2018, easing from a 0.7% gain in the second quarter but slightly higher than market expectations of 0.2%. This slower growth in productivity reflected the slowdown in business output, while hours worked rose after posting no change in the previous quarter. The real GDP of business rose 0.5% in Q3, after increasing 0.7% in Q2. Productivity growth slowed for both goods-producing businesses (0.3% from 1.2%) and service-producing businesses (0.2% from 0.6%). Hours worked in the business sector edged up 0.2% in the third quarter, following no change in the previous period. The 0.5% increase in hours worked in service-producing businesses more than offset the 0.5% decline in goods-producing businesses. Productivity in Canada averaged 87.49 Index Points from 1981 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 105.70 Index Points in the third quarter of 2018 and a record low of 67.65 Index Points in the third quarter of 1981.
