Canada’s economy shrank in the third quarter of 2016, according to new figures released Thursday by Statistics Canada.
The economy shrunk by 0.2 per cent in the three months to March, and by 1.3 per cent for the whole of the year.

Economists polled by Bloomberg expected growth of 0.4 per cent to 0.6 per cent, with the economy adding 1.6 million jobs.
