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%. source: Statistics Canada
