A huge increase in revenues from Atlantic Canada’s international energy exports is masking the stagnation in the region’s non-energy sector. International sales of energy products have doubled since 2000 to reach $12.3 billion in 2005. However, aggregate non-energy merchandise exports from the Atlantic provinces have stalled at about $12 billion since 2000. Exporters have had to cope with a 40% appreciation of the Canadian dollar since January 2003, increasing competition from low-cost producers, higher energy and transportation costs, and weak demand in some sectors.
