This quarterly survey reflects the opinions of Canada's top forecasting organizations and their outlook for the Canadian economy.

Document Highlights

  • The Canadian economy will expand by 1.4 per cent this year, less than the gain of 1.8 per cent that had been anticipated in the winter.
  • The main factor behind the weaker outlook is a more pessimistic view on future increases in investment spending.
  • Increases in consumer prices will be more subdued in 2019, and this factor, among others, has led the Bank of Canada to run a more accommodative monetary policy.
