Document Highlights

  • 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 profitability.
  • 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.
