Monthly Survey of Manufacturing: Flash estimate, May 2020

Released: 2020-06-24

Given the rapidly evolving economic situation, Statistics Canada is providing an advance estimate of sales in the manufacturing sector for the month of May. The advance results for May indicate that manufacturing sales rose 6.2%, as many manufacturers resumed production after full or partial shutdowns in April. Owing to its preliminary nature, this figure is expected to be revised.

This flash estimate is a special product published in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, to provide Canadians with timely information on the manufacturing sector. The official estimate of manufacturing sales for the month of May, which will be based on a more complete set of survey and administrative data, is scheduled for release on July 15.
