Saskatchewan’s wholesale trade in December 2018 reflected a 16.3 per cent increase from December 2017—the second highest increase among Canada’s provinces and the highest in Western Canada. The increase was also higher than the national average of 1.7 per cent. On a month-over-month basis, wholesale trade rose 4.0 per cent from November 2018, higher than the national average of 0.3 per cent and the second highest among the provinces. The number also places Saskatchewan as the highest in Western Canada.

Wholesale trade totaled $2.5 billion in December 2018, up from $2.2 billion in December 2017.
