Calgary Economic Forecast

The Conference Board of Canada’s Economic Trends Division is recognized worldwide for its expertise in economic forecasting, modelling and analysis. We have produced accurate economic forecasts for more than 25 years.

The Conference Board was the first and remains the only organization in the country that produces quarterly gross domestic product (GDP) figures at the census metropolitan area (CMA) level. These data are considered to be the official source of CMA GDP statistics and are used by both public and private decision-makers as well as prestigious organizations around the world, including the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Five-year forecasts with 24 years of history for more than 100 indicators are available for Calgary. The indicators are updated three times a year.
