Issue 16-179: Wholesale Sales

September 21, 2016

Wholesale sales in B.C. stalled in July, inching down 0.2%, (seasonally adjusted). The slight decrease was due mostly to declines in the miscellaneous and building material and supplies subsectors. Canadian sales were slightly stronger (+0.3%), with six provinces recording increases in wholesaling activities. Boosts in Ontario (+0.6%) and Quebec (+1.1%) had the biggest impact on the national increase.
