OTTAWA — Statistics Canada says the country’s merchandise trade deficit with other countries increased to $2.1 billion in November compared with $851 million in October.
Economists had expected a deficit of $1.95 billion, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.
The increase in the trade deficit came as total exports fell 2.9 per cent to $48.3 billion in November, the fourth consecutive monthly decline.
