Medium and Small Cities Economic Outlook 2015: Mid-Sized and Top-Notch

For nearly two decades, The Conference Board’s Centre for Municipal Studies has produced quarterly Economic forecasts for Canada’s Census Metropolitan Areas. While keeping a strong economic component, the Centre’s research agenda now encompasses all the socio-economic factors necessary to enable a city to become dynamic, prosperous and attractive to new business opportunities and a skilled workforce. These forecasts have provided key insights for both public and private sector decision makers since 1997. So what does 2015 and 2016 hold in store? Don’t miss this chance to find out how local economies are faring in this coast-to-coast presentation of the economic outlook for 22 Canadian cities. The Centre for Municipal Studies has found that many of the covered cities are among the fastest growing in the country, on track to post solid economic growth this year, while just one area is expected to experience a recession. We’ll discuss which areas fare better than others, as well as the reasons why in this presentation. This 60 minute webinar will be comprised of analysis for cities whose populations range between 50,000 and 500,000, based on the Conference Board's exclusive Metropolitan Outlook forecast. These cities have been broken into 5 distinct regions of Canada: Atlantic Canada: St. John's, Moncton, Saint John Quebec: Sherbrooke, Saguenay, Trois-Rivières, Rimouski Southern Ontario: Kingston, Oshawa, Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge, London, St. Catharines-Niagara, Windsor Northern Ontario: Thunder Bay, Sudbury, Timmins, Sault Ste.

Vancouver and B.C. Housing Markets: strong – for now

This recorded webinar explores the state of the housing market in Vancouver and other centres in British Columbia — Abbotsford, Kelowna and Victoria. Vancouver’s market is surging, mainly due to strong price growth for single-detached homes. But a slowing Chinese economy could cool housing demand, compounding the affordability challenges in Canada's highest-priced market . The outlook is generally solid for the Fraser Valley/ Abbotsford and in the Okanagan/Kelowna, where strong population growth is boosting demand. However, a soft economic outlook in Victoria means a weak housing market in the capital city.

Ottawa-Gatineau: The 2015–2016 Municipal Economic Outlook

As a government town in an era of public sector austerity, the economy of Ottawa-Gatineau has struggled. Annual GDP growth has been below 1 per cent for three straight years. Due to slow economic growth and lower-than-anticipated revenues, the 2015 budget of the federal government -- the National Capital Region's largest employer -- will keep a tight rein on public administration spending. As a result, it will likely be 2016 before the public sector contributes to overall economic growth in Ottawa-Gatineau. In this webinar, Alan Arcand will provide expert analysis of how the public sector outlook affects the overall Ottawa-Gatineau economy. He will also discuss how a surprisingly-healthy services sector and a rebound in the construction industry will help offset the public sector weakness. All in all, economic growth will improve in 2015, but will still remain well below its historical average. Since 1997, The Conference Board’s Centre for Municipal Studies has produced quarterly forecast for Canada’s Census Metropolitan Areas. In recent years, the Centre has expanded beyond its days as an economic forecasting group. While keeping a strong economic component, the Centre now encompasses all the socio-economic factors necessary to enable a city to become dynamic, prosperous and attractive to new business opportunities and a skilled workforce.

How to Build Strong Cities through Economic Analysis

Since 1997, The Conference Board of Canada’s Centre for Municipal Studies has produced quarterly forecasts for Canada’s Major Metropolitan Areas. Canada’s only market-by-market forecast of the full set of economic indicators covers more than just the largest 13 cities. The Centre for Municipal Studies also provides the only five-year economic forecasts of 15 smaller Canadian metropolitan areas, and also publishes an annual outlook for Canada’s Mid-Sized Cities. This outlook provides economic analysis including overall GDP, sector-by-sector performance, retail sales, housing starts, sectoral employment—and allows it to be compared to other cities, provinces, and Canada overall. But what can you do with all of this information? How can it be applied to policy and strategies to ensure prosperous cities in the future?

Toronto: The 2015 Municipal Economic Outlook

The outlook for Toronto’s manufacturing sector is encouraging in 2015. This is in part due to an improving U.S. economy and a weaker Canadian dollar, both developments aided by sliding oil prices. The city’s economy grew by 2.4 per cent in 2014 and is forecast to expand by 2.8 per cent in 2015, Toronto’s strongest gain in five years. So what other factors are causing this growth? And can it be sustained through to 2016?

Regina and Saskatoon: The 2015 Municipal Economic Outlook

Regina and Saskatoon have consistently been among the fastest-growing cities in Canada. Tight labour markets in both cities will continue to draw newcomers and boost housing demand in the near future. However, the current global uncertainty is causing a moderation in this red-hot pace of growth, bringing concerns for the metropolitan economies in Saskatchewan. Will Regina and Saskatoon continue to grow in 2015?
