Regional Shake-up: The Impact of Lower Oil Prices on Canada

The sharp drop in world oil prices is creating both winners and losers in the Canadian economy. Oil extraction companies are obvious losers. But other sectors of the Canadian economy, including transportation and some manufacturers, could benefit from lower energy prices. Also, consumer spending will receive a modest boost from the drop in gasoline prices. While the Conference Board expects the price of oil to stabilize in the short term, a rebound will be slow. We estimate that world oil prices will only manage to rise above the $60 mark sometime in the final quarter of this year. Under our oil price assumptions, Canada’s overall economic growth will likely remain in the 2 per cent range this year, in line with its performance in recent years. The national impact masks the extent of the shakeup by province. Alberta will be the most affected, as will Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador. Other provinces should benefit, albeit modestly, and to varying degrees.
