Mid-year update on Canada’s economic outlook: Primed for super-charged growth in H2 and through 2022

Topic: Canada is on the verge of a growth spurt as widespread vaccinations permit a full reopening of the economy, pent up demand is released, consumers begin spending their excess savings, and fiscal and monetary stimulus continue in Canada and abroad. All provinces will fully recover by the end of this year, with Western provinces and metros expected to outperform the East after the disruption from the pandemic is overcome. Still, our new North American cities and regions scenario service suggests some downside risks will persist.

Please note that we will be holding one webinar each for Americas, EMEA and APAC friendly timezones:

  • Americas – Wednesday 18th August | 11:00 EDT
  • EMEA – Wednesday 18th August | 10:00 BST
  • APAC – Wednesday 18th August | 10:00 HKT
