November 2, 2009
This industry profile provides a five-year forecast for Canada's Transportation and Warehousing Industry.
- Oil Prices—At more than US$70 per barrel, oil prices remain historically high,
and they are expected to rise further. This will continue to challenge industry
- Pipelines—An expected increase in oil sands production is motivating strong
investments in pipelines.
- Dollar—The Canadian dollar will remain strong, increasing the relative cost
of Canadian goods and resources, and making Canada a relatively expensive
destination for travellers.
