Most cities in Ontario have enjoyed solid economic growth in recent years, especially Toronto and its neighbours. But the province’s cities have seen growth moderate this year due to several factors including consumer spending, the housing market, interest rates and the auto industry.

Find out how 12 metropolitan areas from across the province are expected to perform in 2019 and 2020. This 60-minute webinar will provide an overview of the Conference Board’s latest forecasts for 12 Ontario metropolitan areas: Toronto, Ottawa-Gatineau, Hamilton, Kingston, Oshawa, Kitchener- Cambridge- Waterloo, London, St. Catharines-Niagara, Windsor, Thunder Bay, Greater Sudbury, Guelph.
