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.
That’s the slowest pace of contraction since the recession ended nearly a decade ago.
In March, the Canadian dollar hit a low against the U.S. dollar and the euro, as investors worried about a drop in the U, European and Japanese economies.
The currency has since bounced back, but the economy is still shrinking and the jobless rate remains high.
Economists polled by Bloomberg expected growth of 0.4 per cent to 0.6 per cent, with the economy adding 1.6 million jobs.
