OTTAWA – Statistics Canada says real domestic product grew by 0.4 per cent in November, slightly above expectations.
The improvement was due to strength in a broad number of sectors including manufacturing, finance, insurance, construction, and mining, quarrying and oil and gas extraction.
Economists had expected a 0.3 per cent gain for November, according to Thomson Reuters.
Statistics Canada also revised its result for October, saying the economy shrank that month by 0.2 per cent.
