Canada's economy grew at 5.6% annual rate in first quarter of year​

Statistics Canada says the economy grew at an annual rate of 5.6 per cent in the first quarter of the year.

The economic boost was aided by the loosening of public health restrictions that helped increases in goods-producing and services sectors.

Construction expanded for the third consecutive quarter, driven by construction of single-family homes and renovations as Canadians looked to improve their houses or find a larger space.
