OTTAWA — Statistics Canada says a preliminary estimate shows manufacturing sales rose 0.6 per cent in October.

The agency says the growth came due to higher sales in the petroleum and coal products, paper, primary metals and wood products industries.

The flash estimate for October follows a rise of 1.5% to $53.8 billion in September.

Statistics Canada cautioned that it is continuing to collect October data and that the early indicator is subject to a higher revision rate than its regular monthly release.
