Manufacturing sales in Saskatchewan rose 5.4 per cent (seasonally adjusted) between November 2016 and December 2016, the highest percentage increase among the provinces.  Nationally, sales were up 2.3 per cent.

“This marks the second straight month of increases in manufacturing sales,” Economy Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “It is one of the most diverse sectors of the economy that exports products to clients all over the world.”

On a year-over-year basis, sales were up 11.9 per cent (seasonally adjusted) in Saskatchewan, the second highest among the provinces and well ahead of the 4.1 per cent posted nationally.
