Mid-Sized Cities Outlook

Given the valuable role that Canada’s mid-sized cities play as regional hubs and economic engines in their respective areas, it is important to have a sound understanding of their economic situation and performance. In the current issue of the Mid-Sized Cities Outlook, the Conference Board captured the interest and financial involvement of seven mid-sized cities:

  • Miramichi
  • Sault Ste. Marie
  • Timmins
  • Brandon
  • Medicine Hat
  • Lethbridge
  • Red Deer
  • Prince George

This report includes a review of the recent economic history of all 32 mid-sized Canadian cities for which comprehensive data are available from Statistics Canada. For each of our eight participating cities, we provide more detailed information about recent economic history, as well as a two-year economic forecast. This report also includes a summary of the Conference Board’s economic forecasts for Canada and for each of the provinces that is home to the eight featured cities. This report will be published annually, to enable public and private decision-makers to benefit from up-to-date, comprehensive insight into the economies of Canada’s mid-sized cities.
