    Panel Discussion: Canadian Economic Outlook Update

    Canada's future economic landscape is expected to be influenced by moderate growth, a rising interest rate environment, falling oil prices and slower job growth impacting consumer spending and a vulnerable housing market. In addition, the impact of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) on mainstay export industries in a key trade corridor is yet to be determined. Our annual and highly popular economic panel exchange promises to be engaging by focusing on an in-depth analysis of the current key economic drivers including a discussion of global factors which will affect near term forecasts.
