Statistics Canada announced on Friday that the Canadian retail sales surged 1.1 percent m-o-m to CAD53.87 billion in September, following an upwardly revised 0.5 percent m-o-m gain in August (originally a 0.4 percent m-o-m advance).

Economists had forecast a 0.2 percent m-o-m increase for September.

According to the report, sales increased in 9 of 11 subsectors in September, accounting for 93.2 percent of total retail sales.
