Waiting on Growth: The Ontario Business Outlook

  • 03 Nov 2015
  • 11:00 AM
  • Webinar

Ontario is growing, but slowly. Weaker-than-expected exports in 2015 will hold the province’s growth to about 2 per cent this year, with most of this growth will be concentrated in the second half of 2015. The low dollar and improvement in U.S. economy, should create positive momentum for Ontario, but by how much? And when? 

Join Pedro Antunes and Fares Bounajm for highlights from the most recent Provincial Outlook Economic Forecast. 

This 60-minute session will focus on how the economic situation in Ontario may affect your business plans and strategies in the years to come. If you do business in the Province of Ontario, you won’t want to miss this session. 

Webinar Highlights

  • Learn more about how households remain the main driver of growth in Ontario’s economy. 
  • Get more about the factors—some temporary, some more structural—plaguing exporters in Canada’s manufacturing heartland. 
  • Find out how tourism is experiencing a resurgence, fuelled by the low dollar and sporting events.
