Canada's industrial capacity utilization rate rises for 5th straight quarter

Canada's industrial capacity utilization rate went up for the fifth consecutive quarter, with construction and electric power generation, transmission and distribution driving the increase, the country's statistical agency reported.

Canadian industries operated at 85.0% of their production capacity in the third quarter, up from the downward revised 84.3% efficiency level in the second quarter.

In construction, the capacity utilization rate rose to 89.1% in the third quarter from 87.6% in the previous quarter. In electric power generation, transmission and distribution, the utilization rate reached its highest level since the fourth quarter of 2008, climbing to 88.9% in the third quarter from 85.2% in the second quarter.

The increased capacity utilization in construction, electric power generation, transmission and distribution were partly offset by a decline in oil and gas extraction, forestry and logging.

During the third quarter, the manufacturing industry operated at 85.2% of its capacity, up from 85.1% in the previous quarter. The capacity utilization rate rose in 13 of the 21 major manufacturing groups.
