The Canadian economy expanded 0.7% on quarter in Q3 2022, a fifth consecutive quarter of growth, and following a 0.8% increase in Q2. Growth in exports, non-residential structures, and business investment in inventories were moderated by declines in housing investment and household spending. Exports increased 2.1%, led by crude oil and bitumen, and farm and fishing products. Imports fell 0.4%, reflecting widespread declines in energy products, including crude oil, natural gas, and nuclear fuel. Also, accumulation of non-farm inventories was $46.8 billion, a record high, led by stocks in manufacturing, wholesale trade, and retail trade sectors. On the other hand, housing investment declined 4.1%, a second consecutive fall, coinciding with higher interest rates. Household spending edged down 0.3%, the first decline since Q2 2021, mainly due to expenditures on new trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles, furniture and furnishings, and pharmaceutical products. Also, services growth slowed. source: Statistics Canada

The GDP in Canada expanded by 0.8 percent on the quarter during the three months leading to June 2022, equaling the growth rate from the previous period to mark four consecutive quarters of growth. The accumulation of business inventories contributed the most to growth, seen in both in non-farm and farming inventory investments.

Canada GDP Growth Slows to 0.8% in Q1
The GDP in Canada expanded 0.8% on quarter in the first three months of 2022, the weakest performance in three quarters, due to a 2.4% drop in international exports volumes, mostly energy products. Government spending also slowed as federal transfers to households continued to decline. Still, household spending rose 0.8%, a third consecutive quarterly increase, prompted by outlays on most goods and services even with limited capacity restrictions throughout Canada on in-person shopping and services. Also, investment in residential construction surged 4.3%, prompted by renovations (+9.3%), resale costs (+4.6%) and new construction (+0.2%). On an annualized basis, the economy expanded 3.1%, well below analysts' expectations of 5.4% and 6.6% in the previous period. The Bank of Canada in April projected second quarter growth at 6%.
