Consumer confidence moved up in November, Alberta posts first gain in six months

OTTAWA — Consumer confidence in Canada improved in November, with Alberta seeing an increase for the first time in six months.

The Conference Board of Canada says its index of consumer confidence rose to 103.1, up from 95.3 per cent in October.

The increase came as the index rose in Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta.

However, it slipped lower in Saskatchewan–Manitoba.

The survey was conducted between Nov. 2 and 12.

It asked respondents how they perceive their current finances, future finances, and future job prospects, and whether they think it is a good time to make a major purchase.
