Canadian economic accounts, first quarter 2009 and March 2009

Real gross domestic product (GDP) declined 1.4% in the first quarter, the largest quarterly decrease since 1991. Both domestic and international demand continued to weaken. Real GDP fell 0.3% in March. The declines in February and March were less pronounced than those in the preceding three months. A more detailed analysis and additional data tables are available in Canadian Economic Accounts Quarterly Review.

Industrial product and raw materials price indexes, April 2009

The Industrial Product Price Index and the Raw Materials Price Index were both down 0.5% in April compared with March, halting their upward movements since the start of the year. The Industrial Product Price Index was mainly pulled down by the appreciation of the Canadian dollar in relation to the US dollar, and the Raw Materials Price Index was affected by lower prices for mineral fuels.
