Canada's labour productivity has been fallling recently after increasing each quarter for two years, according to the official agency, Statistics Canada, which measures productivity as the ratio of gross domestic product to the number of hours worked.
During the third quarter of 2006, losses in the manufacturing and construction sectors outweighed gains in mining, oil and gas extraction, financial, insurance and real estate services and rental services.
Productivity in the manufacturing sector fell for the third consecutive quarter and is now down 1.2 percent year over a year.
