Growth in the Canadian manufacturing sector accelerated in June to its fastest pace in more than seven years, hitting the highest since the survey began in October 2010 as output and new orders rose.

Canadian PMI, a measure of manufacturing business conditions, rose to a seasonally adjusted 57.1 last month from 56.2 in May.

A reading above 50 shows growth in the sector.

Output rose to 56.1, its highest since January, from 54.0 in April. It was boosted by increased capacity and rising workloads.

New orders climbed to the highest level since November 2013 at 57.7 from 56.6 the month before.
