Retail and wholesale
Wholesale trade, February 2017
Wholesale sales edged down 0.2% to $58.9 billion in February, following four consecutive monthly increases. Declines were recorded in four subsectors, led by lower sales in the personal and household goods and the food, beverage and tobacco subsectors.
Natural gas transmission, storage and distribution, February 2017

Purchasing power parities, 2015
In 2015, the purchasing power parity (PPP) for gross domestic income from the Canada / United States bilateral program was $0.84 US per Canadian dollar, meaning for every dollar in Canada spent on goods and services, it cost 84.0 US cents in the United States to buy comparable items. This was up from 2014, when the PPP stood at 82.3 US cents per Canadian dollar. The PPP has been relatively stable since 1990, although it continues to be below the 2006 peak of 86.2 US cents. By contrast, $1 Canadian traded for $0.78 US in the foreign exchange market in 2015.
