Canada's Retail Trade Industry: Industrial Profile Autumn 2011
The Conference Board of Canada, 2 pages,
This industry profile provides a five-year forecast for Canada's Retail Trade Industry.
- Consumer Confidence—Waning consumer confidence is contributing to
slowing retail sales growth.
- Retail Pricing—The prices of raw commodities and fuel, as well as labour costs
(particularly in the manufacturing countries of Asia), are on the rise, setting the
stage for a bump in retail costs and prices.
- Interest Rates—The low-interest-rate environment could support consumer
spending growth, although debt burdens are already high.
