This quarterly economic forecast provides highlights of the Provincial Outlook report, which presents the short-term outlook for Canada's provinces.

Document Highlights

  • The long-awaited economic improvement for Atlantic and Central Canada lost momentum as key economic indicators disappointed in the first part of the year.
  • The forecast, however, is positive as we head into 2015. The U.S. economy is on a strong footing and that should help spur business confidence here in Canada.
  • Unfavourable conditions in the agriculture sector will be holding back economic growth in the Prairie provinces this year with real GDP advancing by less than 1 per cent in Saskatchewan.
  • The top-performing provinces next year will be Manitoba and Alberta.
