The recession has dominated business headlines since the financial crash of 2008. The outlook globally has been characterized by market uncertainty and volatility and reduced growth. Much of the recession’s impact passed Canada by, and some current indicators predict robust growth. However, many challenges remain.
 
Prompted by the sovereign debt crisis in the European Union, governments are rapidly switching from stimulus spending to debt reduction. While Canada’s public sector finances are among the most sound in the developed world, governments at all levels are planning major cuts. Meanwhile, interest rates are rising, and China’s concerns about runaway growth have put a damper on rising commodity prices.
 
Glen Hodgson will explain the many factors that are driving economic change. He will also discuss Canada’s potential to maintain its leadership among developed countries, the opportunities and risks ahead, and their possible impact on Canadian businesses. Benefit from the accurate projections of Canada’s leading forecasters to help refine your strategic plans.
