The S&P Global Canada Manufacturing PMI declined to 56.2 in April of 2022, from an all-time high of 58.9 in March, marking the 22nd month running of expansions. Production levels rose sharply, mostly for producers of consumer goods, followed by makers of investment and intermediate goods, respectively. Main upward pressure came from robust growth in new orders, with firms saying they could secure new domestic clients and higher sales abroad. Also, backlogs of work increased sharply as shortage of materials and trucks more than offset higher staffing levels, although firms complained of shortage of skilled workers. On the price front, input price inflation moderated from March’s peak, while the rise in selling charges accelerated to the 2nd fastest in the survey’s history. Lastly, business outlook moderated from March and stood below the long-term average, pressured by elevated cost pressures and uncertainty due to the geopolitical environment. source: Markit Economics

Canada Manufacturing PMI at Record High
The IHS Markit Canada Manufacturing PMI rose to a fresh all-time high of 58.9 in March of 2022, from 56.6 in February, the 21st month in a row with the reading above the 50 threshold. Output, new orders, and employment rose faster, as good producers faced the strongest demand in a year, amid a combination of the lifting of COVID-19 rules, and concerns over both shortages and further price hikes. Also, the aforementioned issues, coupled with delivery delays prompted good producers to expand pre-production inventories at a record pace. Meanwhile, soaring transportation, metal, and fuel prices, as well as input shortages drove costs at an unprecedented rate, which also reflected in a record-breaking inflation rate for selling charges. Finally, manufacturers were more optimistic because of the further easing of restrictions and expectations of a return to normality.

Canada Factory Activity at 3-Month High
The IHS Markit Canada Manufacturing PMI edged up to a three-month high of 56.6 in February of 2022, from a six-month low of 56.2 in January, marking the 20th back-to-back monthly expansion. Output, new orders, and employment rose at faster rates in February, with new orders receiving support from new product launches and strong demand amid the relaxing of COVID-19 measures. Still, vendor performance deteriorated amid poor transportation conditions, shipping delays, and material shortages. On the price front, higher raw material prices were the main driver of a robust input price inflation rate, which translated to one of the highest output price inflation rates in the survey’s history. Looking forward, firms were broadly upbeat on hopes that supply issues would ease and pandemic-related restrictions would end.
