In this first quarter exports increased 1.6 percent (following a a 2.1 percent increase in fourth quarter 2010), while imports grew 2.2 percent (after edging down 0.1 percent in the previous quarter).
All major industrial sectors increased their output , with the notable exception of retail trade and arts, entertainment and recreation, added Statstics Canada. "Goods production rose 1.8 percent while service-producing industries increased 0.7 percent. Manufacturing as well as mining and oil and gas extraction were the largest contributors to growth. Construction, transportation and wholesale trade also recorded notable increases."
