RECORD BREAKING MONTH FOR WHOLESALE TRADE

Saskatchewan products were on the move in February, recording an all-time high for wholesale trade for the month. According to new numbers released by Statistics Canada today, the province’s wholesale trade totaled $1.936 billion. This was a 6.4 per cent jump compared to the same time last year and ranked Saskatchewan third in percentage growth among the provinces.

“Increases in economic markers such as wholesale trade are indicative of the confidence that currently exists in our province’s economy,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said.  “Saskatchewan goods are moving throughout this nation and around the world, helping to create new employment opportunities, attract new investment and generate prosperity right here at home.”

Wholesale trade increased by 5.3 per cent in February, compared to January 2013, landing Saskatchewan in second place among the provinces in terms of percentage change.

“With a new growth plan firmly in place, our government is looking to increase the opportunities and success of this province now and into the year 2020,” Boyd said.  “Central to that will be the momentum that is generated from investments in Saskatchewan's goods and services.”
