Document Highlights

  • The Canadian economy will expand by 1.8 per cent this year, down from a gain of 2.0 per cent anticipated last autumn.
  • The main factor behind the weaker outlook is a more pessimistic view on future increases in household spending.
  • Increases in consumer prices will be more subdued in 2019, likely due to the slump in world oil prices last autumn.
