Service-producing industries (+3.0%) contributed more to the growth than goods-producing industries (+1.3%). A robust housing market led to a 7.5% increase in residential construction and influenced gains in banking services, lessors of real estate, real estate agents and brokers, and insurance carriers. Total construction activity (+1.6%) was tempered by declines in engineering construction and, to a lesser extent, non-residential construction. Wholesale trade grew 3.9% and retail trade advanced 3.5%, with growth reported in all but one trade industry. Professional, scientific and technical services were up 3.7%, largely on increased activity in computer systems design and related services. Financial investment services, air and truck transportation, as well as, federal government public administration contributed to the growth. Manufacturing increased 1.8%, following a 1.1% gain in 2015. Increases in output were reported by motor vehicle parts, food products, plastic products, primary metal products, and pharmaceuticals and medicines manufacturing. Fabricated metal products, petroleum and coal products as well as printing and related products declined. Electric power generation, transmission and distribution increased 3.0%. Low metal ore prices contributed to a significant decline in support activities for mining, with activity in this industry down 85% from its peak in 2012.

  10. 10. Ontario competitivene ss – Hydro Rates  Hydro Rates - high-electricity-prices-crush-business/#3fae312f2fa8 key Quotes “High cost electricity is “unavoidably harmful” because electricity is indispensable: “electricity cannot not be used.”Today, Ontario has had “the highest industrial rates in North America,” far higher than neighbors using low cost natural gas. With prices increased again in November, ratepayers are “angry, confused.” “How Ontario lost 300,000 manufacturing jobs (and why most aren’t coming back).” “Ontario drives manufacturers away with overpriced electricity.” These industry losses are particularly harmful: manufacturing supports high-paying jobs and has extensive “multiplier effects,” that ripple benefits across the entire economy. Devastating the auto sector in particular, “the main reason for soaring costs — and plummeting employment — is the high cost of electricity as a result of the Green Energy Act.”
