Metropolitan Outlook

The Metropolitan Outlook provides our five-year forecast for 29 Canadian metropolitan areas and comprises two reports. The first report, Metropolitan Outlook Book 1, is published three times a year and includes economic insights into the economies of Canada’s 13 largest census metropolitan areas. The second report, Metropolitan Outlook Book 2, is updated twice a year and analyzes the economies of 16 Canadian metropolitan areas.

Each report is available on our e-Library, either through a subscription or individual purchase. The Metropolitan Outlook provides valuable insights to business and municipal executives, economists, analysts, and researchers.
