This quarterly economic forecast for the province of Manitoba examines the economic outlook for the province, including gross domestic product (GDP), output by industry and labour market conditions.
- Employment fell in 2016 for the first year since 2009 but will recover in 2017.
- Delays on the Keeyask and Bipole III projects with the longer construction period will drive growth in the construction sector.
- The impending closure of Hudbay’s 777 mine will cause metal mining output to fall over the next four years.
