Document Highlights

The Canadian economy is in the midst of its worst downturn in decades. Life in cities across the country has been brought to a standstill by the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures imposed to control it. While the impacts are being felt across all cities and industries, some are being hit harder than others.

This edition of our Major Cities Insights updates our outlook for the Canadian economy and provides our new forecasts for growth in 13 major cities across Canada.
