Canada's Economy Expanded for Fourth Straight Month on Factory Output

Canada’s gross domestic product expanded for a fourth straight month in January, led by a surge in manufacturing.
Output rose 0.5 percent during the month, Statistics Canada said today in Ottawa, matching the median forecast of 22 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News. Gross domestic product expanded 3.3 percent in the 12 months through January, matching the year-over-year increase in December.
The results “will certainly cause Bank of Canada to at least revise up their growth outlook,” said David Tulk, chief Canada macro strategist for TD Securities, by telephone. “You’re getting stronger net export growth and perhaps a bit softer domestic demand.”
