Canada's balance of international payments, second quarter 2006
Canada's current account surplus with the rest of the world, on a seasonally adjusted basis, fell by $4.0 billion in the second quarter to $4.2 billion. This was the second consecutive important decrease in the surplus after it had peaked at the end of 2005. As in the previous quarter, most of the decline came from a lower surplus on trade in goods.

Industrial product and raw materials price indexes, July 2006
Prices for manufactured goods at the factory gate rose sharply in July as prices for primary metal and petroleum products increased. Raw materials prices also increased in July, the result of higher prices for crude oil and non-ferrous metals.
