Canada Shipping Report Q3 2015

BMI View: The narrowing of Canada's current account deficit will continue over the coming years, aidedby sharp exchange rate depreciation and improving economic conditions in the US. Lower oil prices willcurtail export growth in 2015, which will hold back the country's shipping industry somewhat, butmanufactured goods exports will increasingly pick up the slack, ensuring a secular decline of the currentaccount shortfall.

Based purely on annual growth, rather than total tonnage handled, the shipping industry's outperformer in2015 is set to be the Port of Montreal (5.62% year-on-year gains) in tonnage terms and the Port of PrinceRupert in box terms (an impressive 16.24% increase).
