Canada's GDP rose in February

April 30, 2013 at 10:04 AM   |   Comments

OTTAWA, April 30 (UPI) -- Canada's gross domestic product grew 0.3 percent in February, the same pace as January, Statistics Canada reported Tuesday.

The data agency said goods production rose 0.9 percent in the month, most of the growth coming from mining and quarrying industries and manufacturing.

In February, construction, output at utility companies and forestry all grew, as did the agricultural sector.

Service industry output expanded 0.1 percent in the month with positive contributions from arts and entertainment, public service -- including education, healthcare and public administration -- and from finance and insurance.

In contrast, declines were noted in accommodation and food service, professional services and wholesale trade, the data agency said.
