TORONTO, April 2 (Reuters) – Canada suffered a surprising
contraction in manufacturing activity in March, according to
data released on Tuesday, suggesting the economy has not yet
shaken off the slowdown it suffered in late 2012.
The RBC Canadian Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index
was at 49.3 last month after adjusting for seasonal variation,
down from 51.7 in February. A reading above 50 represents
expansion, while a number below 50 means contraction.
