" "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 âwill certainly cause Bank of Canada to at least revise up their growth outlook." "The areas of the economy targeting domestic demand -- consumer spending and business investment -- are a little bit softer, whereas manufacturing, thatâs primarily driven by events in the U.S., is a lot stronger,â Tulk said about todayâs report. "Todayâs report showed that manufacturing expanded 2.8 percent in January, the largest jump since September 2003." "Canadaâs economy grew at a 3.3 percent annualized pace in the period from October to December, the fastest pace among Group of Seven nations"
